15 September 2001 – Baker-Haskell Wetlands, Lawrence, KS

Monarch Watch, in collaboration with the Jayhawk Audubon Society, Kansas Sierra Club, Kansas University Environmental Studies Student Association and the Lawrence Free State Biology Club, is sponsoring a monarch tagging event at the Baker-Haskell Wetlands on Saturday 15 September from 7:30 AM to 11:30 AM. Participants should use the 31st street entrance to the wetlands. Approximately 100 nets will be available but participants should bring their own if possible. Tags and instructions in how to tag will be provided. This is a great event for families. The flowers are lush and tall in the wetlands and taggers should dress accordingly. We expect large numbers of monarchs to be present. This event commemorates Monarch Watch’s tenth year.
