NPS Hosts Butterfly Day

The Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge hosted an exciting event for children on July 20. The children participated in discussions, crafts and a nature walk. They learned about the characteristics of insects and shared their favorite bugs with the group. Park Ranger Julia led the nature walk and pointed out cabbage whites, damsel flies, bumblebees, and a fritillary. The young people also explored plants and some of the local wildlife.
