Join us for an Incredible Journey
Each fall, monarch butterflies from the U.S. and Canada begin a 2,000 mile migration to Mexico. The following spring, their great grandchildren return. This summer, for the first time, an exciting opportunity for teachers is coming to Michigan.
'Teaching and Learning With Monarch Butterflies'
July 28-29 Heronwood Field Station - Kalamazoo Nature Center
Workshops are taught by a team of experienced classroom teachers and educators. Participants are provided with the knowledge, skills, materials and confidence to raise monarchs in the classroom and create an outstanding learning experience for their students. Workshop graduates can apply for $200-$800 MTN fellowship awards to participate in one week tours of Mexico or California where we visit the over-wintering colonies of Monarchs and explore local Mexican culture in the state of Michoacán or other animal migrations and old growth forests of California (as well as the literary connections of John Steinbeck).
