Butterfly Walk
Kris Soffa - Pennsylvania Master Naturalist

Welcome summer by exploring the Arboretum’s wildflower meadows and wetlands in search of butterflies. During our walk, we will enjoy observing how male butterflies patrol and chase away others as they wait for females to emerge. We will have the opportunity to inspect specimens (netted with special permission and released unharmed) and we will use viewing jars to get a closer look. Examining features like warning coloration and the body structure of distasteful butterflies always reveals fascinating details. We will discuss the host plants required by various butterfly caterpillars for food. Meet at the Morris Arboretum. Park in the meadow to the left of the entrance kiosk. Wear long pants and sturdy shoes. Bring water and a camera. This class is for adults and children 10 years and older.
