Butterflies & Native Plants Gathering
April 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Do you love butterflies and native plants? Want to learn to identify the different kinds of butterflies that are commonly seen in our area? Want to learn about host plants that sustain caterpillars and nectar plants that sustain adult butterflies? Do you enjoy being outdoors and helping others learn? If so, then consider joining a group of volunteers who serve as docents in the Butterfly Garden at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge. Training for new and returning docents will be held on Saturday, April 6, from 10 – 11:30 a.m. in the Friends of Hagerman building with the first Garden Walk of the year to follow from 12 – 2 p.m.
During training you will have the opportunity to learn about the butterfly life cycle and anatomy; the role of butterflies in the environment; and preserving, protecting, and restoring butterfly habitat. Training will also include use of the butterfly binoculars, how to lead a garden walk, and record keeping. Bring a brown bag lunch and join us for the day! Please RSVP to Donna Rogers if you plan to attend.
