Learn how to ID the most common butterflies of the Bluegrass

To celebrate Pollinator Week, we are highlighting central Kentucky’s butterflies.

Nearly 150 butterflies have been documented throughout the state. This indoor presentation will feature some of the most common summer butterflies in the Inner Bluegrass region. Participants will learn tricks for identification, basic biology of butterflies, and their relationships with native plants. We will also cover community science projects and resources for documenting and sharing butterfly observations. After the presentation, there will be an opportunity to observe butterflies in the pollinator field by the Nature Center.
