Learn about butterflies and citizen science projects!DescriptionPlant a butterfly garden using native seeds, make a collage with real butterfly wings, examine wings with light boxes and magnifiers, make and fly a paper butterfly in a wind tunnel, and explore symmetry in nature. Youth will also learn how to participate in citizen science initiatives such as the Western Monarch Milkweed Mapper, the International Monarch Monitoring Blitz (July 28-August 5), and the Cascades Butterfly Project. Youth will take home their gardens, collages, and citizen science materials. Butterfly wings are courtesy of the Pacific Science Center - all butterflies died naturally. For all ages.
