2016 Butterfly Release South Fork Nature Center Greers Ferry Lake2

10am on Saturday, June 18 @ South Fork

The very popular Butterfly program with Ruth Andre is the focus of this month’s program. So, 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 18 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 experience all of them.

The program will also address any questions that participants have. So, bring questions, friends, and family to this event in the wooded environment of South Fork Nature Center. For more information call 501-745-6444.

This program is free and open to the public. Drive through the South Fork Nature Center entry gate down to the Riddle Log Cabin to begin the trail walk.
