Monarch & Fireflies! Saturday at Hawks Nest
June 29, 2018 @ 9:01 pm
Naturalist Jon Friend will be at the nature center, located at the bottom of the tram at the marina. The Monarch Butterfly (WV’s state butterfly) is such a small creature, yet they play a huge role in our ecosystem. Migrate down to the Nature Center at 3:00 p.m., and find out what Monarch Migration is and how you can help keep Monarchs off the endangered species list.
Chasing Fireflies (8:30-10:00 p.m.) begins in the lower park in front of the gift shop. We’ll have a brief talk about fireflies, habitats, habits and why they glow and then off to the lawn for catch a firefly and let it go! All ages welcome. What a cool evening outdoors!
