Come to MA Audubon's After School Insect Discovery & Monarch Tagging program on Tuesday, Sep 27 from 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm at the Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary field station, 1280 Horseneck Road in Westport, MA.  Pack up the entire family and join us afterschool to look for butterflies and other insects with an entomologist.  Learn more about the monarch butterfly - and - if the weather agrees, how to catch and tag them as they make their way along the migratory route to Mexico.
