Program Description

Event Details

Families are welcome to attend our program for an excellent equinox experience. Come to the Monarch Garden at the Red Mountain Library to celebrate the spring equinox. Southwest Monarch Study will provide expertise about Monarchs in Arizona. We will have crafts for the little one and a chance for you to try out our human sundial. Environmental & Sustainability staff will be onsite to answer questions about green programs and will be giving away origami butterflies. Hope to see you there. 

The spring equinox occurs when the Sun crosses the equator line, heading north. This event marks the start of spring season in the northern half of the globe(Northern Hemisphere). For Mesa, the official Spring Equinox day and time will be on Sunday, March 20, at 8:33 a.m.

This program supports the City of Mesa’s Climate Action Plan (MCAP), a Mayor and Council priority initiative to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, build resilience in our community, and address the negative outcomes of a changing climate.
