Due to the coronavirus pandemic, MPG is taking precautions to keep staff and visitors safe. We are limiting group size and prefer visitors to drive their own vehicles to events. Visitors will need to bring their own guide books, so that we do not share those materials and be prepared to wear a mask in indoor settings. Current transmission trends are again increasing though vaccination is more common. We will continue to monitor the situation and update our protocols as things develop.

Monarch Butterfly Day
Date And Time TBD - Email Maggie For Details
Join MPG monarch butterfly researcher Maggie Hirschauer for a special event. Though western monarch populations are in distress, adult butterflies and their eggs have been found across the Bitterroot Valley this summer. As part of the Bitterroot Monarch Project, Maggie captive reared butterflies found as eggs on the MPG Ranch to research parasite loads and tag adults before release. Join Maggie for a morning at the captive rearing site. If we get the timing right, participants may watch a butterfly eclose from its chrysalis and/or sample another individual for protozoan spores, tag, and release it.

Email Maggie directly for details and directions at Date and time to be determined but estimated between August 8th and 13th. Space is limited and priority will be given to early registrants.
