  • When: 6:00 – 8 pm, (simultaneous sunset/moonrise: 7:15 pm)
  • What: There will be a guided tour at 6:15 pm

2010 will be a much better year to view the migration. This pre-migration event will provide information for people who would like to come out in September to see where they gather and where they roost at night.

Themonarchtrail.org will update the migration daily the 2nd and 3rd week in September.

Rain Date: We will hold a Migration launch on September 11th, same time, same place. The moon will not be attending that evening!
