Butterflies, Dragonflies, and Damselflies

International-Friendship-GardensCome to International Friendship Gardens on Sunday, August 18, 1:00 PM , to learn more about these insects-- butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies--these exquisitely colorful small flying wonders.

Unfortunately, butterfly numbers are uncommonly down this summer, so it's not sure whether there will be any to release as was the case last year. But, we hope to have samples of the various stages of development on display.

Donna Resetar, Valparaiso, loves the Odonata (Dragonflies and Damselflies) and that is why she knows so much about them! She is Associate Dean of Library Services, Science and Engineering Librarian, Valparaiso University.

The Program will start at the Butterfly Garden in the Parking Lot and then we will walk down into the gardens and around Lake Lucerne, in search of these elusive creatures.

There will be limited transportation for anyone who is handicapped. This will be a free program sponsored by the Friends of IFG and a grant from MCCEC.

International Friendship Gardens is located about one mile east of Michigan City on Highway 12.
