Colleen Wolpert – “Improving Habitat for Butterflies and Moths” Thursday, June 21, 2018 7:00pm Hubbard Auditorium, Tioga County Government building (click here for directions) 56 Main Street Owego, NY 13827 (parking behind building via Academy St)
As a curious observer of nature on her property and in her community, Colleen Wolpert enjoys sharing the knowledge she has accumulated about improving habitat for a wide variety of insects and the wildlife that depends on them for food. On only ¾ of an acre, she has had over 50 different species of butterflies and 100s of species of moths. Dragonflies and damselflies hunt by day and different species of fireflies glow at night from May to September.
Providing them with the food and shelter they require is key to helping to keep their life cycle going throughout the year. Come learn what you can do, or stop doing, that will give wildlife the habitat it needs to survive.
