Tagging Butterflies

IMG_1037

IMG_1038We drove to Myrtle Beach State Park Nature Center for a Butterly Tagging class the other week.

DSC01104Ranger Ann began by sharing information about Monarch Butterflies. Our goal was to walk the flowered path along the beachfront, find Monarch butterflies, and tag them.

DSC01133Ranger Ann shared information about Monarch butterflies. Due to the high winds, she, unfortunately, did not expect to find any.

DSC01171Thanks to Ranger Ann and Hayley for sharing such an educational experience. We can’t wait to come back!

Before the class, JP LOVED watching the corn snake slither around in his tank.

You can’t put a price on adventure.
