Omaha’s zoo will have monarch tagging sessions from 1 to 3 p.m. on Aug. 26, Sept. 9, and Sept. 23. According to the zoo’s website: “To gain a better understanding of their populations and migration patterns, citizen scientists tag the super generation of monarchs, who are on their way back to Mexico, from late August through September.”

Monarch tagging is conducted in conjunction with Monarch Watch and the University of Kansas who manage all the data collected during the tagging and monitor migrations. It is open to the public and free with membership to the Omaha Zoo or paid admission. Staff will be on-site for the duration of the times listed. Registration is not required, supplies are limited.
