Butterfly expert to hold book signing and presentation at The Corner Shoppe

Ron Richael, local author of the book “Attracting Butterflies” will hold a book signing and two presentations on Friday, Aug. 8.

There will be two signings: one at noon and one at 1 p.m.

The presentations will include live butterfly species, which will be passed around in identification jars. Richael will explain which kind of plants can be planted to attract each type of butterfly, with attracting butterflies being the main topic. Caterpillars and chrysalises will be available for observation.

A monarch butterfly tagging demonstration will also be given.


Those interested are asked to call The Corner Shoppe at 610 367-6884 as soon as possible to reserve a spot since space is limited.
