Speaker Profile

Our presentations are very hands on especially for small groups. Live butterflies of different species, chrysalises, caterpillars...will be brought with us to allow a more interactive presentation and a greater understanding of these winged insects. Many individuals will have the chance to hand feed butterflies and hold live specimens at the end of the presentation. We provide butterfly garden seeds for every individual attending the presentation as well as an optional live chrysalis for their garden or small caterpillar kit for watching metamorphosis up close (only for groups of 100 people or less). We try to allow learning to continue at home even after the presentation is over.
Kits and supplies are available for purchase on our web site.
