Winnakee Land Trust

Monarch Day at Burger Hill with Hudson Valley Ramble

Enjoy a walk along the paths of Drayton Grant Park at Burger Hill while exploring the pollinator habitat of the Monarchs.  We will point out nectar sources, including the site’s flourishing milkweed, and identify other important pollinator plants.  You’ll learn all about these special insects—how to identify them and their habitat needs that you can nurture at home.  Led by Winnakee’s Assistant Director of Land Stewardship, Jen Adams, participants will also have the opportunity to help us tag Monarchs! Each monarch is tagged with a unique code that helps identify where and when they migrate through the Monarch Watch program.  This is completely safe and does not harm the Monarchs.  The Monarch Watch Tagging Program is a large-scale community science project that was initiated in 1992 to help understand the dynamics of the monarch’s spectacular fall migration.  Your efforts can help researchers understand migration patterns to see what paths they take and help keep track of numbers. 

We will end the walk at the top of Burger Hill’s scenic, panoramic vistas of the surrounding countryside and spectacular views of the Shawangunk Ridge, Catskill and Taconic mountains, Stissing Mountain and the Berkshires.
