Float like a butterfly to the Iowa City Monarch Festival Sunday, Aug. 25, 2019.

The fourth annual Monarch Festival will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at a new location: the Iowa City Municipal Airport, Hangar L72,1801 Riverside Drive. The event is being held as part of the Iowa City Optimist Club's Annual Pancake Breakfast.

All are invited to attend the free festival where you can view Monarchs in various lifecycles, along with a collection of bees and other pollinators.

The event will feature a variety of craft activities, a photo booth, snacks, a variety of nature and nonprofit exhibits, the Iowa City Public Library Bookmobile, as well as several handouts and free gifts.

Dr. Steve Hendricks, Professor Emeritus in Biology at the University of Iowa and an expert in pollination ecology, will also be at the event to talk about pollinators.
