Due to the coronavirus pandemic, MPG is limiting group activities on the ranch. As we open to the public, we are taking precautions to keep staff and visitors safe. We require visitors to wear masks, remain 6 feet apart, and to drive their own vehicles. We are also limiting group size. Visitors will need to bring their own guide books, so that we do not share those materials. Current transmission trends are decreasing and vaccination is more common, so we will ease restrictions as this continues.

Butterfly Count Day
Tuesday 7/6 9:00am-2pm
Join MPG for the annual Fourth of July Butterfly Count (on July 6th). This event will survey the butterfly populations on MPG and will be run by our lead pollinator researcher, Marirose Kuhlman. Be sure to bring a camera and all your butterfly questions! Be prepared to hike short distances. Space is limited. With hot temperatures, please dress accordingly, bring sunscreen, and plenty of water. Participants will drive their own vehicles to the survey site so that they may leave early if the heat is too much. Please RSVP no later than Friday 7/2 to get directions and details. MPG will provide lunch for this event. Early registration is required so we can place the lunch order.

A word from the management
We hope you enjoy your time on MPG Ranch and MPG North. Please be aware that you may encounter old barbed wire, metal or wood, uneven terrain, and other potential hazards. Please remain aware and use good judgement to avoid injury. We hope you are safe while visiting.
