Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge To Host Butterfly Program

Last updated on Wednesday, September 5, 2018

(PATOKA) - Deb Schade and Kate Lynch, both Master Naturalists and Master Gardeners, will present a program on Monarch butterflies on Saturday, September 8th at the Outdoor Classroom on Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge.

The program will begin at 10 a.m. (central time) and last about one hour. If it rains the program will be presented on Saturday, September 15th.

The classroom is located near Snakey Point, next to the parking lot at Boyd's Trail.


Those attending will learn about the Monarch butterfly life cycle and what you can do to help increase butterfly populations. Deb and Kate will also share their experiences captive-rearing caterpillars.

To get to the Boyd's Trail parking lot, head east on State Road 64 through Oakland City. Just outside the city, turn left (north) onto paved County Road 1275 East. Continue about a half mile and bear left onto County Road 1300 E, which becomes gravel. Continue about one mile to Boyd's parking lot on the left. Look for posted brown Refuge signs along the way.
