Spring Valley Nature Club  Meeting Wednesday June 5, 2019 7:00 PM

Join us in welcoming the Butterfly Ladies back to the Spring Valley Nature Club. Last year Carol Johnson showed off the newly built cages and explained what the "Butterfly Ladies" hoped to accomplish. But, never in their wildest imagination did they expect the response the program would receive from the volunteers, public and the butterfly community! Carol, Delores Potter and Judy Wood have been invited to share some of the amazing things the newly recruited volunteers were able to accomplish. You will learn how the program was received by parents and children, the statistics leading to the release of 552 Monarchs and about the group's emergence into scientific endeavors.

The fledgling group was invited to participate in scientific studies conducted by such prestigious groups as the Barrington Conservancy, Field Museum and going forward with two Universities specializing in monarch research. Fun, crazy things happened, and the ladies can't wait to share them with you! New adventures are being planned so come and learn what is in store for their second season. Bring a friend to enjoy the program, refreshments will be served!
