Join Seasonal Interpretive Ranger Stephanie and local butterfly expert Lois Worthington for a fun and educational program and hike about some of the birds and butterflies found at Seven Islands State Birding Park! We’ll discuss the important role that some birds, such as hummingbirds, and butterflies play as pollinators in the ecosystem. Come learn about the amazing transformations that take place as a caterpillar becomes a butterfly during its lifecycle. As part of the program, participants will receive information on native plants and trees to plant in your own yards to attract and benefit local birds and butterflies.

Please arrive at the Bluebird Barn by the main parking lot on Kelly Ln by 9:00 AM. Please bring water, sunscreen, bug spray, and sturdy walking shoes or boots. We will hike about 2 miles on the trails in the park to try to see some of the birds and butterflies in the fields. Binoculars will be recommended for better viewing of some birds and butterflies from a distance. The program registration fee is $5 per adult (16+ years). Children are welcome to attend the program as well and are FREE with an accompanying paid adult registration. If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact Seasonal Interpretive Ranger Stephanie at [email protected] or by cell phone 715-630-6848.
