If you are interested in butterflies and would like a close encounter with some of those flying beauties, come to South Fork Nature Center on June 20 beginning at 10 AM. There will be displays of butterflies in all stages of their lives, discussion about their place in the ecosystem, and a release of adults into nature by participants.
Due to the elusive nature and sometimes very small size of butterflies, many of us haven’t witnessed traits such as the clubs at the tips of antennae, the furry looking head and thorax of the body, and the way light reflects off of the eyes in species specific patterns. At this event you will have an opportunity to all of them.
The program will include some information about the butterfly life cycle with examples of each stage. It will also address any questions that participants have. So, bring questions, friends, and family to this fun event in the wooded environment of South Fork Nature Center. This program is free and open to the public.
