Presqu'ile is a tagging place for Monarch butterflies before they start their migration south.
As might be expected the trick is to catch the Monarch and then place the tag on the lower wing.
The Park Infocenter has exhibits showing the Monarch lifecycle and their immense migration trip.
The Park has excellent lecture tours that identify the local fauna & flora.
Here are Admiral and then Viceroy butterflies. The Viceroy is a Monarch mimic because the Monarch is poisonous to many birds.
