Monarch Festival- October 13, 2018

Save the date for San Marcos's very first Monarch Fest! Conservation groups will be there to show visitors the importance of monarch butterflies and other pollinators that can be found in the region. Peruse our fall plant sale and be inspired to build your own butterfly garden and lend a helping hand to pollinators while enjoying native flowers. Learn how to join citizen science projects and help track monarchs as they make their migration to and from their wintering grounds in Mexico. Did you know Central Texas is in the heart of a flyway for many migrating species of birds and insects including the monarch butterfly? That means we are lucky enough to witness a diversity of migrating species when the time is right. Come see what San Marcos is doing as a city to help pollinators and learn how to get involved to make a difference!
