Programs are held on Sunday afternoons at 2:30 pm and last for two hours.This spring, experience frogs and warblers by sight and sound, or become acquainted with the butterflies' world. These indoor programs are good introductions for upcoming outdoor walks listed with each description.

Dozens of local and New York species, as well as those found in the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, are specially noted.
