A Butterfly Morning for BCR Members

Beaver Creek Reserve, Wise Nature Center, S1 Cty Road K, Fall Creek, WI 54742
This program is being offered to Beaver Creek Reserve adult members only! We will spend the morning learning a bit about the butterfly's fascinating life cycle, some of the more common butterflies found in Wisconsin, and how to attract them. Then we will take a private tour of our butterfly lab to see how we raise and care for caterpillars and butterflies for the Butterfly House. After the lab tour we'll head out to the Butterfly House and enjoy the beauty of our native butterflies, up close and personal. If you want to learn more about our native butterflies, this program is for you!

Aquatic Plants of Wisconsin

Beaver Creek Reserve, Wise Nature Center, S1 Cty Hwy K, Fall Creek, WI 54742, Exact meeting place TBA
Lakes are beautiful gems that hold many wonders including aquatic plants. These plants are often regarded as “seaweed” or “weeds” even though they play a vital role in the lake ecosystem. Learn about the diversity of these plants by exploring a secluded lake by canoe in the Chippewa County Forest. Participants will sample for the plants, identify them, and even learn how to press aquatic plants. Canoes and life jackets will be provided. Bring sun protection and wear clothing that can get wet. Your own transportation to the field site is necessary. More details upon signup.
Registration and payment required by July 25.
