Join Save the Dunes on September 18, from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM, as they celebrate the journey and migration of the Monarch butterfly through our region with music and food at Michigan City’s Brewery Lodge & Supper Club. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Save the Dunes’ work to protect and advocate for the Indiana dunes, Lake Michigan, and the surrounding natural areas for the health and vitality of the environment and the people who live, work and recreate in Northwest Indiana. This includes efforts to protect hard-working pollinators such as the Monarch butterfly.
Monarch Music Fest tickets are $40 online and are available until the event reaches capacity (250 people limit). Each ticket includes entrance, food, and 1 beer ticket. Beer, wine, and cocktails for an additional cost will be available on-site. Attendees will enjoy music by Robert Rolfe Feddersen and Caught on Cline. The event will also offer a silent auction filled with unique dunes experiences. Note that attendees must be 21 years or older to attend. Tickets can be purchased at savedunes.org under the events tab. Right here.
“The return of our in-person events after a two-year hiatus has been such a welcome change. As we greet both familiar and new faces at Monarch, Music and More, we bring awareness to our important work restoring pollinator habitats and building connectivity between habitats for pollinator species here in Northwest Indiana,” says Betsy Maher, Executive Director for Save the Dunes. “Our Pollinator Guide recently received an award from the American Society of Landscape Architects and is a fantastic resource for local residents to make their own backyards more pollinator friendly.”
Monarch populations are in steep decline due to habitat loss and fragmentation, climate change, and pollution. September marks the migration month for the Monarch butterfly species and we look forward to a fun evening of community, learning, and entertainment as we raise awareness of the important roll pollinators play in our local environment.
Special thanks to the Brewery Lodge & Supper Club, Zorn Brewery, Dig the Dunes, and our event sponsor Castle Subaru for making this event possible. Be sure to get your tickets today!
