Enjoying and Conserving Butterflies of the Florida Panhandle (4-Week Class 2/19, 2/26, 3/4, 3/11) (Wednesdays, 9:00am-11:00am)  

The course will provide a general introduction to butterflies, covering not only their biology but also their past and current relationships to humans from cultural, artistic and philosophical viewpoints. Students will be given an overview of the 120-plus species of butterflies found in the Florida Panhandle and how to enjoy them in the field and in their gardens. Efforts to conserve rare and declining butterfly species, both locally and globally, will also be addressed. The last day of class will consist of a field trip to Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park to observe some local butterflies. Class size limit: 30.

REQUIREMENT: Field trip will involve an easy hike on local park trails.
