San Antonians can ring in spring this weekend by celebrating monarchs, milkweed and migration at the 2021 Monarch Fest.

The San Antonio Zoo is showcasing all things monarch by giving visitors free native milkweed and nectar plant seeds, as well as the chance to partake in entertaining games and crafts while educating guests on how they are able to help conserve monarch butterflies.

San Antonio was named the first Monarch Champion City by the National Wildlife Federation in 2017 for its commitment to the species after adopting 24 recommendations from the NWF.

The weekend-long event is included with standard admission to the zoo.

$25.99-$29.99, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday, March 27 and Sunday, March 28, San Antonio Zoo, 3903 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 743-7184,
