Species Spotlight: Butterflies

March 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free
FPWC Headquarters
Butterflies have long captured the imagination of poets, mystics, and other observers of nature. And there are sound scientific reasons to observe butterflies, as well.  Some butterflies rely on certain, very specific, host plants to support their larva (caterpillars) and, as such, can be important indicators of ecological health. If you are attracted to butterflies and would be interested in collecting field data for the Illinois Butterfly Monitoring Network, please attend this informative session, led by Doug Taron of the Peggy Notebaert Museum in Chicago.
Pre-register for this session online by clicking HERE no later than Monday, March 19th  if you wish to reserve a printed copy of the instructional materials at the event.  Walk-ins are always welcome, though space is limited.
This session is free and open to anyone interested in learning about butterflies; however, those interested in volunteering as official FPWC butterfly monitor will need to attend this training. Contact our volunteer coordinator via e-mail at komalley@winnebagoforest.org, or call (815) 877-6100 for more information.
