This immersive workshop has been designed to give participants the knowledge, skills, and resources to create outstanding learning experiences for their students, nature clubs, and community.

Delivered by experts from the Monarch Teacher Network of Canada, participants will learn about the life cycle, migration and habitat requirements of the Monarch butterfly. Training on appropriate handling and care protocols, tagging and tracking of migrating Monarchs and ethical considerations related to species conservation will also be covered.

Hosted at the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, this special workshop allows participants to experience a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse into the operations of this unique attraction.

Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided.

About the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory

The Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory is a magical attraction that features over 2,000 colourful tropical butterflies floating freely among lush, exotic blossoms and greenery. Paths wind through the rainforest setting, past a pond and waterfall and Emergence window, where butterflies leave their pupae and prepare to take their first flight!
