Butterflies in the Field
1 sessions, 4 hours
Enjoy the magic of butterflies in the field! We think of butterflies as summer creatures, yet spring brings some species we don’t see the rest of the year. You’ll learn how to identify common butterflies in the field and tell them from moths. Expect up close viewing and plan to take plenty of pictures. We’ll provide transportation (using an FCC van) to a locale in the Montgomery-Frederick-Washington County area. The exact location will be determined at least one week prior to the start of class. Please bring your own water and snacks or lunch. Suitable for beginners and most ability levels though we may walk up to 2 miles on fairly easy terrain. No refunds after close of business 5/9.
