Workshop: Exploring Columbia County Butterflies

Saturday, June 24, 2023 - 13:00 to 15:00

1pm-3pm Workshop: Exploring Columbia County Butterflies (facilitated by Conrad Vispo)

Columbia County is home to almost 100 species of butterflies. And yet, how many of these can you picture? Where do they live? What conservation challenges are they facing? How can you learn more about them?

During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Observe a variety of local butterflies in the butterfly house stocked with “catch of the week”
  • Learn about the rarer butterflies of Columbia County (ones you won’t see in our butterfly house or the surrounding fields)
  • Get an introduction to the tools of the trade
  • See a display of historical butterfly books illustrating the evolution of Northeast butterfly knowledge and its role in public natural history education

Registration requested (, but walk-ins are welcome.
