Celebrate the amazing journey of the Monarch butterfly! There will be music, fun activities, talks about Monarchs, and food! Conservation and pollinator friendly plants will be available for purchase.
The Sandy Creek Monarch Festival is a celebration of the fact that Sandy Creek Park is a certified waystation for Monarch butterflies as they migrate to Mexico. The park features milkweed, nectar sources and shelter that help sustain Monarchs throughout their migration.
This Festival is brought to you by Friends of Sandy Creek Park, along with The Triangle Land Conservancy, Durham Parks and Recreation, Keep Durham Beautiful, and the City of Durham.
