As spring returns, it brings our favorite butterfly back with it.
You can expect to see more of the brilliant orange and black wings of the monarch in the next few weeks. We in the Brazos Valley are fortunate to witness the seasonal migration of the monarchs in the fall as they head south and in the spring as they return to the north.
To celebrate the spring return of our favorite winged friend, the Parks and Recreation Department hosts its annual Monarch March event on Sunday, March 22, at Lick Creek Nature Center. The free event will be from 1-4 p.m., and additional parking will be available in the Lick Creek equestrian lot.
Festivities include a walk through Lick Creek Park’s Monarch Waystation, photo and educational booths, tips on creating your waystation or butterfly garden, and much more.
Community organizations such as Butterflies in the Brazos, the Brazos Valley Master Naturalist, and Brazos County Master Gardeners will host booths and lead fun activities to help us learn how to support the amazing monarch.
Join us as we celebrate the monarchs at Lick Creek Park. For more information, visit cstx.gov/LickCreek or call 979-764-6216.
