Junior Naturalists at Minnewaska: We Love Butterflies!

Tuesday, August 18, 2020 09:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Join park educators to learn about butterflies and what makes them so unique. We'll search for evidence of their activity, including eggs, caterpillars, leaf chewing and actual butterflies, as we walk the trails in the Peter's Kill Area. Bring your own crayons and decorate a monarch butterfly mask that we'll provide to each child. Feel free to bring your own insect nets to use too! This program is recommended for children between the ages of six to ten years old, accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Siblings of any age are welcome; however, younger siblings may need parental assistance. Due to COVID protocols, the total number of participants for this program is limited to eight individuals. All participants must wear face coverings or keep a minimum six foot distance away from others who are not part of your immediate household. Meet at the Peter's Kill Park Office. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
