Mark your calendars for this year’s Monarch Fest happening March 23rd & 24th.
In partnership with the City of San Antonio, we are hosting a two-day festival celebrating all things monarchs, milkweed, and migration! Receive free native milkweed and native nectar plant seeds, participate in fun games and crafts, and learn how you can help end the extinction of the monarch butterfly.
What is Monarch Fest?
In 2017 the city of San Antonio was named the first Monarch Champion City by the National Wildlife Federation. As a Monarch Champion City, we are dedicated to adopting 24 recommended actions cited by the NWF, and one of those happens to be hosting a festival dedicated to the Monarch butterfly. San Antonio Zoo is helping fulfill one of the 24 actions by hosting the city’s first ever Monarch Fest!
San Antonio Zoo is a member of the Alamo Area Monarch Collaborative a city initiative to conserve the monarch in San Antonio Texas and surrounding areas.
