This event has reached capacity and registration is now closed.

Butterflies and dragonflies—or “leps and odes,” as naturalists call them—are among the most colorful and interesting insects that make use of the Garden during the summer. Join naturalist Brad Klein to learn about their life histories and how to identify them in the field without having to capture them. Bring binoculars if you have them. Registered participants should meet at the Visitor Center.
