Explore the Magical World of Butterflies!

August 8, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Who doesn’t love butterflies?

For kids ages 9-12
Does your child enjoy the outdoors and learning about the natural world? Then the Junior Master Naturalist program is the perfect way for your 9 – 12 year old to explore and discover the wonders of nature.

University of Illinois Extension Junior Master Naturalist program provides science-based educational opportunities that connect kids with nature and helps them become engaged environmental stewards.  This Special Interest (SPIN) 4-H club will inspire members to gain a sense of belonging with hands-on exploration through nature.

After enrolling, your child will get to:

  • Observe how a butterfly’s world changes with the seasons.
  • Experience a butterfly’s complete life cycle
  • Learn how to identify, collect, raise, and identify a variety of butterfly species
  • Grow into a Junior Citizen Scientist

This 6-session club will meet at various locations around Ogle County on Tuesdays from 4:30 – 6 p.m. from August 8 through September 12.
