Butterfly Program with Mike Scott


Join us on July 27 from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm to learn about butterflies with Mike Scott. Mike has been volunteering at Ivy Creek since 2000, teaching people about our local butterfly and moth species. While not a “school trained” entomologist, the information he shares comes from 50 years of observing, reading, raising caterpillars, and enjoying nature.

The butterfly walks that Mike leads each summer are aimed at teaching people how to quickly identify the most common species in our area by size, color, and behavior. He also emphasizes the importance of planting both nectar plants and caterpillar food plants to encourage multiple generations of butterflies in your own yard. The session will begin with about 30 minutes of classroom time and then we hit the trails to see what we can find. 

This event is free and open to the public but space is limited. Please sign up at https://app.dvforms.net/api/dv/9mNwo
