How can one, with paper wings, withstand the challenges of a 3,000-mile journey? At this time of year, it’s not just the birds preparing to migrate south! The monarch butterflies here in NH are about to flutter their way down to the forests of northern Mexico. Let’s imagine we are monarch butterflies as we discover some of the challenges a 3,000-mile adventure presents when you weigh less than a tic-tac, can’t get wet, and use the sun as your GPS to get you safely across the continent.
Intended for kids and families, the Buds & Blooms Series is a compilation of five in-person public programs intended to introduce participants to the magic and wonder of our native plants and pollinators. Occurring monthly through October, each program highlights a topic pertaining to pollinators and includes an interactive activity as well as a take away. Parental supervision is required and content/material is best suited for children ages 4-12.
This program is free of cost, but RSVP’s are required to reserve your spot.
