Join James Kamstra and Ontario Nature Conservation staff for a Butterfly Identification Workshop on Pelee Island

July 26 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Butterfly identification workshop, Stone Road Alvar Nature Reserve

Can you tell a monarch from a viceroy? Join Ontario Nature and expert biologist James Kamstra, as we lead you on a hike through Stone Road Alvar Nature Reserve to learn about Ontario’s butterfly species. You will learn how to identify common species found in the area and how to make your own backyard more pollinator-friendly.

This event will be limited to 7 participants and will observe social distancing guidelines. Participants from different households will maintain a distance of two metres from one another and will not share equipment. Please bring a face mask.

Make sure to dress for the weather and wear long pants and sturdy closed-toe shoes, as we will be walking off trail for a portion of the event. Space is limited so please register online in advance!

Meeting Location: At the Carolinian Canada sign mid-way down Stone Road on the west side, parking along the road.  You can look up directions using google maps (https://goo.gl/h91eF8)

To Bring: Please bring snacks, water and butterfly nets and field guides if you have them.
