FOLLOW THE MONARCHS! CONTEST
During the Butterflies Go Free event, you’ll be able to see some fifty species of butterflies, including the monarch. But did you know you can also take part in the Follow the Monarchs! contest, organized in partnership with Télé-Québec, to help save this iconic butterfly? The idea is simple: the more you do to help monarchs, the greater your chances of winning. The grand prize is a trip to Mexico in 2020 to visit a monarch sanctuary along with an expert from the Insectarium. What an experience that would be!
