BETHEL — The Mahoosuc Land Trust’s annual Monarch Festival will be held on Sunday, August 14 (rain date of Sunday, August 21) from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The free event will be held at Valentine Farm, 162 North Road. Activities include tagging a monarch on its way to Mexico and constructing a home for a woodland creature. Joe Wallace will talk about the bugs he raises and exhibits. There will be a children’s story time and vendors will sell their wares at arts and crafts tables.

Over 70 species of flowers provide habitat for native birds, bees and butterflies. Valentine Farm was a gift from Dick Valentine and was transferred to Mahoosuc Land Trust in April 2016.
