The Magic of Butterflies

Viceroy butterfly

On Sunday, August 6 from 10 am – Noon, join butterfly expert Dr. Bill Benner to scout for the belles of the insect world: butterflies! There are more than 100 species in the state of Massachusetts, and at least 7 of those are endangered. Come learn about butterflies’ habits and life cycles, what challenges they face, and how you can help protect their habitat.

We will explore a beautiful conservation area in Belchertown to look for butterflies, and possibly dragon flies too. You will receive the meeting location details after you register.

Dr. Bill Benner is a practicing veterinarian and the editor of “Massachusetts Butterflies,” the journal for the MA chapter of the North American Butterfly Association.


RSVP Required: Limited to 20 people. Register below to learn meeting location.

Any rain will cancel: There is no rain date for this program.

This program is free but donations are welcome. You will have an opportunity to donate after you register.
