BACKYARD BUTTERFLIES CLASS

Let’s Go Butterflying!

Butterfly identification is a complex thought process that goes beyond rote memorization of static images. We will teach you the various skills necessary for making a correct ID. We will then head out on some trails to practice your newly learned skills.

AVAILABILITY

This class is available April through September to coincide with the butterfly season.

DURATION

Class time is variable. The lecture portion is 90 minutes. The practical portion is a minimum of 60 minutes.

HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE

We will venture out on hiking trails to search for butterflies in their natural habitats to apply knowledge learned during the lecture.

LOCATION

Both the lecture and practical portions can either be conducted at Backyard Butterflies or at your location. We may opt to hold the practical potion at a location near Hillsborough such as Brumley Forest NP, or Eno River SP.

RECOMMENDED AGES

Ages 8 and are above are recommended for this class.

CUSTOMIZATION

We can customize portions of this class to suit your group’s needs.
