      Monarch Butterflies: The Great Migration

      Our guest speaker Stephen Schutt, the superintendent in the Oconee County Park System (High Falls, South Cove and Chau Ram County Parks)  will focus his presentation on the South Cove Park, not only for its incredible beauty but because several years ago it became a monarch way station and began tagging monarchs on their way to Mexico. Monarch butterflies are known for the incredible mass migration that brings millions of them from as far as Canada to California and Mexico each winter. North American monarchs are the only butterflies that make such a massive and epic journey - up to 3,000 miles, an awe-inspiring journey! In this talk Mr. Schutt will explain the health of the monarch population, the migration routes of the monarchs, how you can help scientists learn more   about the monarchs through tagging, and how to create your own monarch way station. Come learn about these incredible butterflies and their journey to Mexico through Oconee County. Sierra Club  meetings are open to the public. Members and guests of all ages are always welcome! Directions & Parking options at the event? Enter from State Park Road, continue around the building to the back. Plenty of illuminated parking around the back entrance of the UU Fellowship. Go through the double doors, to hallway on the right to the fellowship hall.
