Description: Explore the unusual world of butterflies while we discover what species are flying at the nature center. We will go through field and forest to look at butterfly adaptations, ecosystem roles, how butterflies are helping us in unexpected ways, and how you can help our local flying flowers. Learn tips for identification, online resources and opportunities for community science.

Materials Participants Should Bring: Comfortable trail walking shoes, a journal to take notes, hat, water bottle, snacks and sunscreen. Please, no bug spray. Optional: camera, binoculars and butterfly field guide.
