Get Ready for Butterflies – and Butterfly Day! – at DeKorte Park

White Cabbage Butterfly DeKorte 5.31.16

Cabbage White Butterflies are beginning to make their presence known at DeKorte Park, as these photos taken last week by Mickey Raine show. We should be seeing Monarchs, Swallowtails, Skippers and more in the next month. And don’t forget Butterfly Day, on Saturday, July 30, from 10 am to 3 pm.

Our annual celebration of the winged marvels at DeKorte Park features walks, talks and plenty of activities for kids including a scavenger hunt, face painting and a butterfly costume contest. The free event is co-sponsored by the Bergen County Audubon Society and the North American Butterfly Association – North Jersey Chapter.
