At the July Little Explorers you and the three to
eight year old child(ren) in your life can investigate the wonderful
world of butterflies and moths.

“Floats Like a Butterfly” is the theme for this Audubon Community
Nature Center program on Saturday, July 14, 2018, 10-11:30 a.m.

In order to survive and grow, moths and butterflies make some pretty big
changes to their bodies and the way they act. After a lesson, you will
head outside to catch some of these incredible insects and learn all
about how they change as they move through life.

The lesson inside is followed by the outdoor exploration and a snack. If
time and weather allow, a craft is included.

The program takes place rain or shine, so be sure to dress for the
weather.

The fee for Little Explorers is $8 for adults, $6 for Nature Center
members and children.  Reservations are required by Thursday, June 12,

The whole family can learn about a special butterfly at Audubon’s

education programs are funded with support from the Carnahan Jackson
