Butterfly Festival & 25th Anniversary of Fields Pond Celebration

25th Anniversary of Fields Pond Celebration & Butterfly Festival – Join the Party, Join the Parade!

Butterflies play a vital role in the ecosystem as pollinators and are an important source of food for our native bird species.  With over 60 species of butterflies recorded, the Fields Pond Audubon Center is the perfect setting to celebrate the beauty and diversity of butterflies. Ongoing events will include: Monarch tagging, Insect BioBlitz, butterfly crafts, and more. Come dressed as your favorite butterfly and join the Butterfly Parade at noon! Free event for the whole family.

9 – 10 am  Sandra Mitchell workshop: “Insects through the Lens of a Camera.”  More info here >

12 – 2 pm: Darling’s Ice Cream for a Cause!  We’re delighted to announce that Darling’s Ice Cream Truck will also be here from 12 – 2 pm! As part of Darling’s Ice Cream for a Cause program, Darling’s will hand out free ice cream, and any voluntary donations (cash or check donations only) will go to the Fields Pond Audubon Center.
