Butterfly Release Nature- Animals,
Nature- Gardening,
Visual Arts- Crafts
Everyone loves butterflies, especially up close and personal. They are a medium that unlocks the heart of angry teenagers, and are able to coax the shyest of children out of their shells. When there is a butterfly release in town, people literally drop everything to attend. The day of the event students learn how to identify host and nectar plants, what Monarch eggs, larvae, and pupal forms look like; how to tell a male from female and why the males have pheromone pouches on their wings. There is much discussion on native butterflies in NY and identifying specimens patrons have observed. Releases attract the attention of the local media, and are great publicity. I have Monarch, Painted Lady, Mourning Cloak, Eastern Black Swallowtail, and Red Admiral Butterflies this season. Wild-caught displays (not always available) might include Eastern Tailed Blue, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Clouded Sulphur, Cabbage White, White Admiral, and Baltimore Checkerspot. At the end of the program the butterflies are released either individually or as a group. Please email me with any questions and to be added to my live booking link and visual catalog. This program is suitable for the 2019 Summer Reading Program.
$101- $200
Horses 101 Health & Fitness- Sports,
Life Skills- Other,
Nature- Animals
Welcome to the world of horses! Children and adults alike are fascinated by these majestic creatures, and the experiences with them can be magical! Spending time around horses and ponies has been proven in many studies to be therapeutic on many levels both physically and emotionally. The bond can be quite powerful and healing, but where to start? It is important to know the nature of a horse, how to properly handle them on the ground as well as while riding. Proper care and feeding, tack fitting, and maintenance will be discussed as well. This is all taught out of the American Association for Horsemanship Safety manual by Jan Dawson. Katie, our real life miniature horse will be available to be pet, groomed, and for demonstration of safety techniques. Please email me with Programs in the subject line with any questions to be added to my live booking link. This program is suitable for the 2019 summer reading program.
$101- $200
Wild Foods History,
Life Skills,
Nature
The Native Americans used a hunter-gatherer model for centuries before agriculture was brought to their land. They knew how to find and prepare many foods from the wild, foods that still exist and are readily available today. Would you survive a natural disaster, war, or zombie apocalypse? This program will show you the plants that are in your own backyard that you can survive on, even in winter. Patrons will handle real native plants and learn when, where, and how to locate them. They will be able to taste wild foods during and after the program. Based on Euell Gibbons book “Stalking the Wild Asparagus. Please email me with Programs in the subject line with any questions and to be added to my live booking link and visual catalog.
$101- $200
