Starting July 19th, UBG Summer Series

UBG Summer 2014 PosterThe Urquhart Butterfly Garden is excited to announce our 2014 Summer Series. Starting July 19th, we will be hosting workshops with experienced naturalists and guided bird and butterfly ID walks in the garden with Matt Mills.

Matt’s free Guided Butterfly and Bird Identification Walks will begin Saturday August 2nd at 11am and continue every second Saturday: August 2nd, 16th, and 30th, and September 13th. Matt is an experienced naturalist and public educator, and many people who attended his walks last year can attest that he’s great at opening our eyes to the huge diversity of life that exists alongside us in Dundas and Hamilton.


The free public workshops will cover a range of subjects and will occur on alternating Saturdays starting July 19th at 11am.
