Join Fontenelle Forest for their Seniors Understanding Nature (SUN) lecture series at the Nature Center on April 11. The April 11 lecture will cover Butterfly Observation Over the Years.
Joanne Langabee and Holly Hofreiter have been doing research for Lauritzen Gardens and Fontenelle Forest for several years. They will talk about their experiences, common butterflies of our area and how to ID them by behavior and markings. They’ll also share research data which shows the fluctuation of butterfly populations, and they will discuss what can contribute to these changes. You’ll also learn how you can help to increase butterfly numbers in your yard.
Snacks and coffee are available before the presentation. This program is for adults ages 55 and up who enjoy learning about the natural world.
This event is free for members or with daily admission.
