Teaching & Learning with Monarch Butterflies: Royal Botanical Gardens

Wed Jul 25 to Thu Jul 26, 2018, Burlington, ON

Discover the incredible story of the Monarch butterfly, and find out what you can do to help protect this iconic and imperiled species.

Our hands-on workshop explores the Monarch’s life cycle, migration and habitat requirements, and provides all the necessary skills and equipment to bring Monarchs into any educational environment. Participants of the workshop are eligible to apply for the scientific collectors permit required to collect monarch caterpillars from the wild.

Topics covered include:

- the significance of milkweed for Monarch habitats
- appropriate care and handling protocols throughout all life
- history of tagging and tracking of migrating Monarchs
- ethical considerations related to species conservation

A second day will explore curriculum-linked activities focussed on the monarch butterfly. Participants may choose to attend one or both days.
