Depending on availability, participants will take home butterfly eggs or caterpillars to raise and release.

The workshops will be held at the Huntington County Fairgrounds at 631 Taylor St, Huntington, IN. The program is appropriate for all ages. If you are interested in learning more about these endangered Monarchs and other butterflies, please call (260)-358-4826, or email gRelated
