Visit monarchs in Mexico
As part of their mission to provide educational opportunities, Norman Bird Sanctuary will embark on a new program of environmental travel.
This fall, individuals may visit the Norman Bird Sanctuary during the Monarch butterfly migration in early October to observe monarchs and participate in tagging the butterflies. Later this winter, individuals are invited to join sanctuary naturalists for a trip of a lifetime, visiting the butterfly sanctuaries in the highlands of Mexico where butterflies are found clustered by the thousands.
The 10-day expedition will cost $2,900, excluding airfare to central Mexico, and will take place Feb. 24 to 29, 2008. NBS is holding 12 places for NBS members - to become a member, join on-line. The experience includes moderate hiking and horseback riding into a remote wilderness region of the Mexican highlands.
