HAMILTON, OH (FOX 19) - Fly, flutter and flock to Miami Whitewater Forest Visitor Center for Monarch Mania Weekend! The event will be held on Saturday, September 11th from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sunday, September 12th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
As these beautiful butterflies journey across our area in route to their wintering site in Mexico, it's the perfect time to learn more about them. Monarch Mania will feature crafts, a migration game and a scavenger hunt for families to find as many monarchs as possible.
Researcher Lester Peyton will give a presentation on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. to explain the monarch life cycle, how to attract them and will demonstrate how to research them by tagging real monarchs and then setting them free.
