Monarch Journey

Bring a Fun Learning Experience to your Classroom


A Monarch Journey butterfly program brings a wealth of educational, fun and easy to understand information about the life cycle of the monarch butterfly, (Danaus, plexippus) using a variety of media, including live caterpillars and butterflies. Students and adults of all ages benefit from the experience of seeing live monarch butterfly caterpillars munching milkweed in a safe-for-the-caterpillar environment. Check out the program page for more information and fee schedule.

In light of the current Covid 19 Pandemic and the subsequent closing of schools, libraries, and nursing home visiting restrictions Monarch Journey has temporarily suspended butterfly program bookings for the 2020 Spring and Summer season. Please inquire if you are interested in booking a program in Fall 2020.

In addition, for the next few months, the Monarch Journey website will be under construction. Please bear with me as I continue to update the site.

Please browse the web site pages and links, as well as download program info in PDF format.
