FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Learn all about wildlife, wetlands, and preserving endangered species at the annual Monarch Festival.

Although the event has been canceled for 2022 due to weather, it’s usually the biggest event of the year for the Little River Wetlands Project, organizers said.

Located at the Eagle Marsh Barn, the free event includes vendors, food trucks, and entertainment for the whole family. Education stations teach attendees about nature restoration and the role pollinators play.

The festival was canceled this year due to thunderstorms.

“Safety is always our number one priority with any event and we did not feel it would be safe to hold our mostly outdoor event in these conditions,” organizers said in a release Sunday.

Monarch Festival had been scheduled to be part of “Be a Tourist in Your Own Hometown”, the event where the public is invited inside historic or notable buildings that have a story to tell in Fort Wayne.
