2016 Monarch Butterfly Release

September 13, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Each year, El Valor’s children, individuals with disabilities, staff, and families raise approximately 100 Monarch butterflies from egg to maturity, including the endangered milkweed plants that they both eat and lay their eggs on.

In partnership with the US Forest Service International Programs, the butterflies are microchiped and released in the fall each year at a public celebration to begin their migration to Mexico. Learn more about the Monarch program at El Valor by following the below link.
