Deb Schade and Kate Lynch, both Master Naturalists and Master Gardeners, will present a program on monarch butterflies on Saturday, September 8th (Rain Date -- September 15th) at the Outdoor Classroom on Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge. The Classroom is located near Snakey Point, next to the parking lot at Boyd’s Trail.
Deb and Kate will talk about the monarch butterfly life cycle and what YOU can do to help increase butterfly populations. They will also share their experiences captive-rearing caterpillars, and expect to have caterpillars and supplies to display. The program will begin at 10:00 am (central time) and last about one hour.
To get to the Boyd’s Trail parking lot, head east on SR 64 through Oakland City. Just outside the city, turn left (north) onto paved CR 1275 E. Continue about a half mile and bear left onto CR 1300 E, which becomes gravel. Continue about one mile to the Boyd’s parking lot on the left. Look for posted brown Refuge signs along the way.
