Butterflies of Bamboo Brook
Saturday, August 11
9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
Chester Township


Join the folks as New Jersey Conservation Foundation in search of butterflies in summer meadows along Patriots' Path at the Bamboo Brook Outdoor Education Center, 170 Longview Road in Chester Township. The Butterfly Walk is free, but advance registration is appreciated.

Blaine Rothauser, conservation biologist and nature photographer, will share fun facts about the lives and habits of butterflies, and teach children and adults how to identify common species.

In the mid-1960s, New Jersey Conservation Foundation was one of the organizations that conceived the idea of creating Patriots' Path, which now traverses Morris County and connects with trails in neighboring counties.
