A Cross-Country Roadtrip: Arkansas Game and Fish presents 'On the Monarch Butterfly Trail'


Fall is coming quickly and here at the Steve Landers group, we couldn’t be more excited to watch the leaves change and the temperature drop. As the world around us prepares for colder weather, many animals decide to leave and head toward warmer climates. One of the most exciting and breathtaking species to migrate is the Monarch butterfly. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is hosting ‘On the Monarch Butterfly Trail,’ an imaginative journey through the migration of Monarch butterflies from Arkansas all the way to Mexico, Saturday, September 8 at the Witts Stephen Jr. Central Arkansas Nature Center in Little Rock, Arkansas. 

Each year, Monarch butterflies, or Danaus Plexippus Plexippus, take flight and travel cross-country to avoid frigid winter temperatures that would threaten their numbers. For decades, Americans have been fascinated by the natural phenomenon, and rightly so. These beautiful, winged creatures catch our eye and it’s a common occurrence to see plenty of Monarchs right outside our doors. Traveling across the plains, over the Rockies and settling on the west coast, Monarchs are truly a sight to behold. 

‘On the Monarch Butterfly Trail’ promises to be an informative look into just how impressive the Monarch journey truly is. Completely free to the public, the event will surely be a hit for children and adults alike. Be sure to mark your calendars and make the most of this Saturday event! The Game and Fish Commission is fortunate enough to put on events like ‘On the Monarch Butterfly Trail’ thanks to the support of the ? Cent Conservation Sales Tax.
