Finding Butterflies!

Presented by Jerry Schneider

Learn the importance of leaving the screen and electronics behind, getting out into fields, and investigating places where butterflies find food and lay their eggs!

In addition, we will discuss differences between butterflies and moths, where to find butterflies and how to attract butterflies to our gardens. We will also learn interesting butterfly facts and behaviors– did you know butterflies taste with their feet?!

After the presentation, children will create their own butterfly tee shirt (heavy, 100% cotton). Children may purchase heavy cotton shirts for $4.00, or bring their own.
