March for Monarchs

"Monarch Butterly" is one of 21 sculptures visitors to Houston Botanic Garden will see as part of "Glass in Flight."

March for Monarchs will take participants on a journey through the Houston Botanic Garden, designed to mimic conditions along the route the butterflies follow on their northern migration from Mexico to their summer breeding grounds in the northern United States. Along the way, they will face challenges and obstacles, and other times receive rewards. At each station, participants will learn everyday things they can do to help protect monarchs on their long journey. The event will culminate with a backyard celebration, welcoming the monarchs to their breeding grounds, with food, sweet treats, crafts, games, and info on how to make your backyard a wonderful home for monarchs.

Participants will leave with a new understanding of the amazing journey the iconic insects complete, as well as a native milkweed plant to start their own butterfly garden.

March for Monarchs is also an opportunity to see the monarch butterfly and 19 other steel-and-stained-glass sculptures included in Alex Heveri’s Glass in Flight, which is on display in the Susan Garver Family Discovery Garden, where the “backyard celebration” takes place.

Non-member fee of $20 includes general admission to the Garden, the “backyard celebration,” and a take-home plant. Garden members receive a $15 discount.
