Where the Wildflowers Grow: Butterfly Walk
August 20 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Come to Pilot Mountain State Park to learn about native butterfly species with Ranger Maggie Miller. You will walk a mowed path that is part of the Rosalyn Carter Butterfly Trail (approximately 1.0-mile each way). This path is an exceptional place to see native grasses, wildflowers, and six-legged species. Spend the walk learning how to identify insects and about an extraordinary migrator, the monarch butterfly.
Ranger Maggie is the Interpretation and Education Ranger at Pilot Mountain State Park. Prior to becoming a North Carolina State Park Ranger in 2017, she attended Eckerd College in Saint Petersburg, FL. She graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Environmental Studies. Her passion lies in protecting public lands, the wildlife that calls them home and providing education to visitors.
This walk is part of NCWF’s Walks on the Wild Side series that creates opportunities for the public to learn about and connect with the natural wonders of North Carolina.
The event is free and open to the public, but space is limited and registration is required.
