Monarch Butterfly Release Celebration

Water Department staff will host a public release celebration of rare monarch butterflies that the Department has been raising at Fresh Pond Reservation since July. The release ceremony, preceded by a parade beginning at the Walter J. Sullivan Treatment Facility and ending at one of the Reservation’s native meadows in Kingsley park, is the grand finale to Cambridge’s Fresh Pond Monarch Watch and a celebration of our official designation as a monarch “waystation".
