Learn to Raise Monarch Butterflies at Audubon Workshop in Dunkirk

Learn to Raise Monarch Butterflies at Audubon Workshop in Dunkirk

Jamestown, NY – Monarch Butterflies are born and raised on milkweed.

On Thursday evening, September 7, 2107, you can learn how to find their eggs and raise the caterpillars to adulthood, helping a species that has been disappearing from the local landscape.

Citizen scientists can then tag and release them to migrate to Mexico.

The 5:30-7:30 p.m. “Raising Monarchs” workshop will be held at the Fredonia Technology Incubator in Dunkirk.

Butterflies are fun to raise with kids, grandkids, or on your own, and this project can increase the local population of a butterfly that has been hard to find in recent times.

The class will go into the details of how to raise Monarch butterflies successfully, avoid common mistakes, and experience the joy of releasing butterflies.

Learn About Water Chestnut Removal Progress at Audubon’s September 1 First Friday

Learn About Water Chestnut Removal Progress at Audubon’s September 1 First Friday

Jamestown, NY – You may have been reading about, hearing about, or working on the eradication of the invasive Water Chestnut at Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC).

To learn about the progress that has been made, you can come to Audubon’s First Friday Lunch Bunch on September 1 and hear a report by ACNC President Ruth Lundin.

Efforts to remove the plant began in the fall 2012. Lundin will teach you a bit about this plant, summarize the efforts taken to remove it, share lessons learned, and progress to date.

European Water Chestnut (Trapa natans) is an invasive aquatic plant that was released inadvertently into waters of the Northeast in the late 1800s. It is slowly spreading throughout New York State, clogging waterways, lakes and ponds and altering aquatic habitats. This variety of water chestnut is not the same as the product which can be purchased in cans at the supermarket.
