The monarch butterfly begins its migration in September, heading thousands of miles south. And some stop at Wave Hill on the way! With bold, painterly marks, make large-scale, printed butterflies with gorgeous, orange-red-black patterned wings. Participate in a group installation on the Conifer Slope, displaying milkweed and butterfly prints that show the inspiring journey of the monarch butterfly.

Admission is free until noon on Saturday.

On Sunday, stick around for a butterfly walk with Naturalist Paul Keim at 1pm (ages 10 and up, with accompanying adult).
