Monarch butterfly program


July 31, 2013

KAUNEONGA LAKE, NY — Naturalist Ed Wesely will lead a monarch butterfly program at the Delaware Highlands Conservancy’s New York office on Saturday, August 17 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.

For 20 years, Wesely and Barbara Yeaman have rescued monarch butterfly eggs and caterpillars from threatened habitats, reared, and released them. With the help of local school children, they’ve nurtured and released over 6,000 adult monarchs.

Come and learn about the monarch life cycle, its migration to Mexico, and the threats to the monarch butterfly population and their habitat. This program is for the whole family.

This event is free and open to the public, but prior registration is requested. The Conservancy’s office is located at 120 Segar & Rosenberg Rd. To register and receive directions, call 570/226-3164 or 845’583-1010, email info@delawarehighlands.org, or visit www.DelawareHighlands.org.
