Free guided nature walks integrated with art-making workshops for the annual Monarch Festival at Lake Nokomis Park. A free outdoor activity for the whole family!
Monarch Magic! is a new, free activity program offered by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, and led by Artist-in-Residence James Everest, with Naturalist Jenny Winkelman and several guest teaching artists. All activities take place outdoors at Lake Nokomis Park, and are free and open to people of all ages and abilities.
In a series of five 2-hour interactive workshops, participants will learn about various aspects of Monarch Butterfly habitat and then work together to create a community performance installation for the annual Monarch Festival. This new “Magic Monarch Pathway” will serve as an immersive entryway from Lake Nokomis and nearby neighborhoods into the Festival on Saturday, September 10.
