New Buffalo Township Library Event Calendar
|Time:||10:00 AM - 11:30 AM|
|Location:||New Buffalo Elementary|
|Description:||The lifecycle and migration habits of monarch butterflies will be among the subjects covered in a short, family-friendly walk at the New Buffalo Elementary School's Nature Study Trails on Saturday, August 8 at 10am Eastern. The hike includes a look at the school's new prairie and a half-mile walk along the school's trails. Children are especially welcome. Those who attend should wear long pants, a sun hat, sturdy shoes or boots and insect repellent.
“For decades, hundreds of millions of monarchs flooded the continental U.S. and southern Canada after wintering in Mexico," walk leader Pat Fisher, president of the Harbor Country Hikers, says. "Their population has decreased by as much as 90 percent in recent years.”
The school is located at 12291 Lubke Road in New Buffalo. There is some construction at the school and parking options may be affected. The group will meet inside the circle drive at the back of the parking lot (on the left as you face the school).
Please observe social distancing for this event.
Use of face masks is required.
