Preschooler program on butterflies and bugs at Salamonie

“Butterflies and Other Bugs,” a program for ages 2 to 5, will be offered Wednesday, June 22, at the Salamonie Interpretive Center.

The program runs from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Children and their parent or caregiver will learn about butterflies, insects and spiders, try to catch some, and enjoy a craft.

In almost any weather, the program is planned to be both indoors and out, starting at the interpretive center. Participants may want to arrive early to enjoy the exhibit area and gift shop. Participants can choose to bring their lunch to eat together after the event.

A $2 fee per child will be charged for the program. The standard property entrance fee will be waived for program attendees. Advance registration, by calling (260) 468-2127 or visiting the interpretive center, at 3691 S. New Holland Road in Andrews, is requested. Caregivers are expected to stay with their child throughout the program.

The interpretive center and Otter Run Tradin’ Post is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. This barrier-free building features exhibits, floor-to-ceiling windows in the wildlife viewing area, and staff to answer questions. The center is located in Lost Bridge West Recreation Area on Highway 105 in western Huntington County.
