Science Timmins is hosting Science North for a butterfly pinning workshop this Saturday. The workshop involves pinning real butterflies in shadow boxes. Participants will take home the shadow boxes after the workshop. There will also be camouflage games and other activities. Participants will learn about pollinators and experience how pollinators see ultraviolet pollen trails on flowers, using UV flashlights.
The workshop will be offered twice. The first workshop will be from 10 a.m. to noon and the second will run from 1 to 3 p.m. A light lunch of sandwiches, finger foods, cookies, and hot and cold beverages will be provided for participants by St. Mary’s Gardens in the St. Mary’s Garden pub at noon.
The workshop is free. Space is limited and can be reserved by contacting Science Timmins at [email protected]encetimmins.com or 705-268-4543. Preregistration is required.
