The Norma Johnson Center will host a butterfly exhibit open to the public for free starting July 20 and going through July 30. Through the sponsorship of the O'Donnell Family Charitable Foundation, the exhibit will be open for 10 days this year.
The exhibit will be under the Picnic Shelter on Conservation Drive off of Old Route 39 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12 to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Fran LeMaster's traveling butterfly exhibit by "All A Flutter" has been a huge hit at the Center for the last couple of years. This free exhibit allows visitors to step inside the enclosure and view several native Ohio butterflies up close and personal.
Chrysalis will also be on display and hatching throughout the week inside the exhibit.
Free Crafts will be offered by the Norma Johnson Center and the Tuscarawas County SWCD staff. For a fee, visitors can purchase certain crafts, monarch chrysalis and food throughout the week.
Donations will be accepted to support the NJC mission of promoting the conservation and preservation of natural resources through education, community outreach and personal experience.
Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Norma Johnson Center is located on Route 39 three miles west of the I-77 Dover/Exit 83 and six miles east of Sugarcreek. Inquiries about the exhibit can be made by calling 330-339-7976.
