Evening nature programs scheduled at library in September
Monroe Lake's interpretive staff will present two free programs for the public at the Monroe County Public Library in September.
The first program is "The Monarch Migration" on Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. The program will focus on the annual migration of monarch butterflies to Mexico. Attendees will learn why and how the butterflies make this journey and discover how to create a monarch migration "waystation."
The second program is "Urban Naturalist" on Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. The program will look at how some animals have adapted to life in the city, occasionally leading to people-animal conflicts. The program will also explore how to have a healthy relationship with birds, insects and other wildlife in an urban residential setting.
Both programs will be in Room 1C.
The Monroe County Public Library is at 303 E. Kirkwood Ave., Bloomington. For more information, call (812) 837-9967.
