The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Time: 12:00 PM to 12:45 PM

Fee: Free!

Event Details

Watch a naturalist live as they show the magical stages of a monarch butterfly. Hear how naturalists find eggs in odd places. Zoom in close to see a tiny egg, a little caterpillar the size of your eye lash, and a hungry caterpillar, a chrysalis and an adult butterfly. Witness a monarch’s first flight as we release it back into the wild.

Don’t be shy; our naturalist is happy to answer your butterfly questions and give some pointers on how to “butterfly-up” your lawn. We will also discuss the pros and cons of rearing monarchs at home.

The live stream will be pinned to the top of our Facebook page once we go live at noon.

Please note, this is an online only event.

This is a great way to take a break during lunch and learn something new.
