A lovely news update for everyone on this gift of a Spring/Summer day. Five monarch butterflies tagged at the Pearl in October during the 2017 Monarch Butterfly and Pollinator Festival have made it to Mexico safe and sound, marking a successful migration. According to Texas Butterfly Ranch, these five tags that occurred at Pearl constitute 0.54% of the total 928 tags recovered and reported back to Monarch Watch–an exceptional number, given that an estimated 80,000 butterflies in total were tagged this season.

The second annual Monarch Butterfly and Pollinator Festival called ‘Butterflies without Borders’ was held October 20 through October 22 with generous support by Pearl. A few thousand San Antonians gathered at Pearl Park to witness several hundred butterflies as they were released from a custom-made Mariposa Pyramid. The festival aims to raise awareness and appreciation of the insect pollinators that make one of every three bites of the food we eat possible.

Pearl has historically remained one of many pit stops for Monarch butterflies on their migration path and visitors will often see them when at the campus. The Pearl is excited to lend a hand in helping the butterflies on their journey to landing safely in Mexico and look forward to this beautiful tradition for years to come.
