Happy MAD

Do you appreciate monarchs? If so, the city asks you make it official and do so on Monarch Appreciation Day, which (apparently) is this Saturday. To celebrate, there will be a day of festivities at the Zilker Botanical Gardens, starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m. We recommend that you head over to the city website for a list of activities, which include butterfly releases and observation, the Austin Bike Zoo, dancing and something called “the Singing Zoologist,” in addition to a variety of hands-on activities for children.
