Who left that footprint? What kind of bone is that? Is that a pile of…..feathers? While we might not always see wildlife around us, there are plenty of traces of them if you know where to look.

The Magic of Butterflies 
Wednesday, July 8th, 2020
7:00 - 8:00 PM EST

Who wants to go butterflying? Watching butterflies as they float effortlessly among blooming flowers is a true source of summertime joy. If you admire the dazzling colors of swallowtails, the incredible migration of monarchs, or you wonder about the transformational process of metamorphosis, join us for an evening all about the diverse array of butterflies that make Pickering Creek their home!  Mary Helen Gillen began studying monarchs as a volunteer docent at a winter resting site in California 10 years ago. After returning to her home state of Maryland, she dove into the butterflying hobby and has spent the last five years at Pickering Creek, searching high and low for butterflies small and large; stunning and subtle.  Register in advance for this meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
