Butterfly Workshop

SEPTEMBER 10, 2011   9AM-3PM

Marc Minno's Butterfly Workshop

Marc Minno is the author of  Butterfly Gardening in Florida and many many other books. For the past 11 years you have asked us for this workshop! Marc recently received the Southern Lepidopterists' Society John Abbott Award for outstanding achievement in expanding knowledge of Lepidoptera.

The workshop will begin inside with butterfly biology and ecology featuring Marcís beautiful field photography. Marc will then lead the group outside on The Florida Scrub-Jay Trail to identify butterflies and caterpillars as well as discuss how to attract butterflies to your property.

You will participate in tagging and releasing Monarchs, as well as other butterflies in the garden. How to rear and monitor butterflies as well as how to properly make a collection of butterflies, moths and other insects will be demonstrated.

Bring a brown-bag lunch and enjoy time with Marc as he autographs his books and signs his quick identification guides which will be available for sale.

Space is Limited.
Cost:  $25.00
RSVP:  Reserve your space and application by contacting us at  (352)-429-5566 or   info@scrubjaytrail.org

Workshop will close once filled, and no later than August 26th,
whichever comes first.
