Friends of Sears Island hosts free program for adults. Biologist Serena Cole will teach and lead the group to the certified Monarch Waystation milkweed field to look for butterflies, net and assist with tagging them as part of the Monarch Watch program, which tracks the annual butterfly migration. No registration required.

The organization is also looking for a few volunteers to continue tagging monarchs on Sears Island for several weeks during peak monarch migration. Those who attend will be considered trained and can request sticker tags and a data sheet. Tag quantities are limited and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis to willing volunteers.
