Umbrella Academy Presentation
May 29 @ 6:45 pm - 8:00 pm
May 29: Colleen Wolpert: “Caterpillar Gardening: What Butterflies and Moths Need to Complete Their Life Cycle” Do you plant lots of showy flowers so you can see colorful wings fluttering about your yard? Gardening for butterflies and moths (i.e., leps) is more than planting nectar sources for adults. Learn how you can assist them in all stages of their lifecycle as well as distinguish them from pests, so that all of us can enjoy these beautiful creatures in the future. Learn specific things you can do to help Monarchs and what a Woolly Bear caterpillar turns into. Learn how more caterpillars in your yard can lead to more fireflies in your yard. There will be an opportunity to ask questions about the beautiful bugs in your yard, along with handouts and children’s activity sheets. Wolpert is a naturalist and butterfly and moth enthusiast. IMPORTANT NOTE: This session will be held at the Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Butterfly Garden, 56 West Main Street, Owego, unless the weather prohibits it. Check the website after 5:30pm that day to see if we have decided to move indoors for a Power Point Presentation at the Library in Owego.
