Texas Folklife was proud to partner with the Trinity River Audubon Center in Dallas to wish a buen viaje to the monarch butterflies as they migrated south through Texas to their final destination in the forests of Michoacan, Mexico. To celebrate the occasion, the TRAC held a festival with a variety of presentations on butterflies and Latino-themed cultural programs, like the history of conjunto music but with a twist - all with songs about birds!
