Butterfly Action Week
August 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until August 8, 2020
Take a self-guided butterfly walk on Wisdom Prairie. Holy Wisdom is one of the sites for Butterfly Action Week, a virtual Olbrich Garden butterfly program. On August 4, 6, 7, and 8 from 10 am – 12 pm, volunteers will provide tips for butterfly viewing and hand out a one page guide to the butterflies you are most likely to see here this time of year. If you miss these morning viewing times, pick up a guide at the kiosk near the parking lot.
Bring your magnifier if you have one, or get one from us. While you are out on the prairie or walking around the lake, look for all sorts of bugs on flowers and grasses.
Butterflies are active on sunny days. The sun warms their muscles and raises their metabolism so they fly. On a cloudy day, you won’t see as many butterflies.
We hope to see you in the prairie and bring your friends. All ages are welcome. No pets please.
