Exploring Nature Speaker Series: Saving the Monarchy – One Milkweed at a Time

Join Tracy Aviary monthly, April – August, for our new Exploring Nature Speaker Series, which features six afternoons of nature-inspired fun with local experts and luminaries.

This month, join us for an engaging presentation on the iconic monarch butterfly, who has captured the hearts of Americans for generations. We’ll explore their amazing migration (up to 3000 miles!), what it takes to visit Utah each year, and how each of us can help them as they teeter on the edge of the Endangered Species List.
