“Woodland Butterflies”, featuring naturalist, Marne Titchener

Enjoy homemade sparkling lemonade, plus summery treats and sweets as you take in the new art gallery exhibit of ‘Butterflies of Ohio – a mixed media extravaganza’!   Each of the 25 works of art will be paired with a voting jar for you to cast your vote for your favorite!  This cool exhibit will run through September 17.

At 7:15, we’ll settle into our seats to learn more about these amazing creatures with guest speaker, Marne Titchener, Wildlife Program Specialist with the Ohio State University Extension.  She works to provide a variety of educational programs, workshops, conferences, and publications centered on wildlife ecology and biology, habitat management for wildlife, and managing nuisance wildlife species. Although planting flowers is a great way to attract butterflies, they also need woodlands, too!  Many pollinators including butterflies, moths, and bees find good habitat in wooded areas.  Join us as we discover different species of woodland butterflies and other pollinators, how they use woodlands, and how you can help them!

Admission for this seasonal celebration is just $5 for BNC Members and $10 for non-members (cash or check).  All proceeds from this event will support the development of our Pollinator Garden, a haven of native plants created for our native insects!
