SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Citizens interested in the study of the monarch butterfly can call The Outdoor Campus in Sioux Falls to assist with their annual fall butterfly count and tagging.
 
 “We’re looking for places where migratory monarchs hang out in the evening,” Thea Miller Ryan, director, said. “Migratory monarchs hang out in trees and bushes by the thousands into the second week of September.”
 
Volunteers interested in helping tag butterflies are also being sought. “This is a great activity for the whole family,” Ryan said.
 
Sign up to help tag or report migratory monarchs, by calling the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department's Outdoor Campus at (605) 362-2777.
