Calendar of Events

Monarch Tagging

All ages welcome! We will use butterfly nets to catch migrating monarchs and tag them with small ID stickers. If the monarchs are recaptured later in their migration, scientists will use their ID stickers to learn more about population and migration patterns. Meet at England Idlewild Park, next to ballfield #7 (near temporary dog park).

Paddle to the Ghost Ship

Paddle with us to the Petersburg Ghost Ship! We will launch kayaks from the boat ramp at Petersburg Park and paddle about 1.5 miles up the Ohio River, until we reach the mouth of Taylor Creek.
