Come enjoy a full day of all fun out on the farm! Help us save the Monarchs!
Monarch Butterflies migrate each year across the United States. There are two migrating populations of monarch butterflies in North American divided by the Rocky Mountains. The range of eastern monarchs extends from Canada to Mexico, while western monarchs are more focused in the United States from the Pacific Coast inward.
Here at the Cibolo Center for Conservation, we take particular interest in helping to protect Monarch Butterflies. Though we have all heard of Monarchs, most of us don’t realize what an impressive species they are. We created a Monarch Festival to create awareness around the monarchs great migration.
