August Outing: Lepidoptera & Odonata

Dragonflies, damsel flies, and butterflies are beautiful and amazing insects, and you have a second chance to come learn about their habitat and their habits. Saturday, August 2, from 10 am to 12 pm, join naturalist Josh Rose in the meadowlands of Hadley to meet the resident Lepidoptera (the fancy name for butterflies and moths) and Odonata (the dragonfly order). A great outing for children and families! 

RSVP for the meeting locations: email or call 413-549-1097 by 3 pm on Friday Aug. 1st. $5 suggested donation per person. (Any rain cancels.)
