**Award of Awesomeness Nominee! ** Monarchs in a Changing World: How These Butterflies Bring Us Together

November 7 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

THIS EVENT IS CURRENTLY OPERATING A WAITLIST.

Learn about monarch butterflies and the importance of conservation while helping to complete a new mural!

Is there a better metaphor for “change” than the metamorphosis from caterpillar to chrysalis and finally to butterfly? This mysterious transformation process has evoked awe for millennia. This event asks what wider transformation needs to happen for our world to remain hospitable to these magnificent creatures.

Under the guidance of mural artist Megan Jefferson, attendees will help complete a 4-panel mural while learning about the monarch butterfly life cycle. Staff with the Central Indiana Land Trust and Indiana Wildlife Federation will share how we can all work together to conserve the monarch’s habitat – which in turn supports other plants and animals! Everyone gets to go home with milkweed seeds (the only food monarch larvae eat) to plant at home.

A partnership between Central Indiana Land Trust, Jefferson Art Studio, and Indiana Wildlife Federation.
