Butterfly Day at Montour Preserve

Despite cloudy skies on Sunday, September 11, MontourPreserve’s annual Butterfly Day, co-sponsored by the Central Susquehanna Valley chapter of the North American Butterfly Association attracted a number of kids and adults. Educational programs and fun activities on butterflies culminated with the tagging and release of live monarch butterflies. Both adults and children delighted in gently handling these long-distance migrants as they began a southward journey to Mexico.
