Butterflies of Coshocton workshop set

| April 18, 2013

COSHOCTON – The monarch is one of the most common butterflies that we can identify in our area. But what about the other butterflies that you see floating among the flowers? Join the Roscoe Village Landscape Department as it present a two-part workshop on The Butterflies of Coshocton.

On Thursday, May 23, David Woodmansee will be the guest speaker when he focuses on what butterflies frequent the Coshocton area and their habits. The second session will take place in June with a hands-on approach. Participants will work with Connie Miller in the Butterfly Garden at Roscoe Village in planting nectar perennials and host plants. Following the June session, perennials which attract butterflies will be handed out.

There is a limit of 15 for this two-part workshop and a fee of $5 helps to cover cost of the perennials. Meet at the Shryock Picnic Shelter behind the Visitor Center from 6 – 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 23. Call 622-7644 ext. 10 to register.
