Guided Butterfly & Moth Identification Walk
& Plant Sale
Saturday August 10, 11am
Accomplished Naturalist Matt Mills, will be pointing out all the interesting
butterflies and day-flying moths, that can be seen at this time of year. Matt’s guided
interpretive walk will be on Saturday August 10th at 11 am.
“The Urquhart Butterfly Garden changes from day to day, and with the changes
come different butterflies seeking their host or nectar plants” Matt said recently
when chatting, and he pointed out that the Buddleia is now in flower which attracts
many nectar seekers.When choosing nectar plants it is important to be selective, because some flowers look terrific but do not provide the nectar that butterflies are seeking.
This is especially true of hybridized and treated plants. Matt grows many native
plants from seed which he has carefully collected and all are ‘butterfly friendly’.
Following the Workshop there will be a ‘cash only’ plant sale.
The guided walk takes about an hour. It is recommended that you bring a chair, and
wear a hat. The event is cancelled if it rains.
The Summer Series is funded by the Dougher Fund of the Hamilton Community
