About This Activity

Description

Ages 4-7 with an adult. Join Whitney as she takes you and your child(ren) on an exciting journey through the life of the Monarch Butterfly. Whitney is a nature enthusiast who raises monarchs in her backyard. The four stand-alone workshops highlight specific parts of the life of the Monarch and include hands-on activities, weekly butterfly-themed crafts, read alouds, stages of metamorphosis and in-depth education about raising these most-delicate creatures. Individual classes dive into topics on planting (not spraying), habitat restoration, tending to the caterpillars, collecting/growing milkweed, searching for butterfly eggs and how to properly raise caterpillars for healthy butterfly releases. Workshop locations will be unique and may include King Elementary, Windemere Park, Whitney's backyard and Westerman Preschool and Family Center. Register for all four classes at a discounted price to get the complete experience of raising Monarch butterflies. Participants will physical/social distance and commit to weekly self-health screenings. Instructor: Whitney Wilkes-Krier. Price includes $5 material fee. Scholarship recipients pay $10.


Notes: All in-person programs are subject to cancellation due to inclement weather or an influx of COVID-19 throughout the community. Participants will physical/social distance and commit to weekly self-health screenings.

Rec & Ed follows current mask-wearing requirements and recommendations from MDHHS and the CDC. Our summer class mask-wearing policy is as follows (and is subject to change based on MDHHS guidance or orders):
