Bugs & Butterflies - June 2, 2013 - Thomas Riley Wilderness Park

I want to share with everyone how our day was as exhibitors at the Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park “Bugs and Butterflies” event on June 2, 2013.

We are just guessing, but we think we talked to at least 150 people – well it seemed like it was that many! Glad to see so many parents bring their children to an event of this nature. These kids are our future scientists so they are an important audience!

We were able to not only enlighten the visitors about our OC NABA chapter with our new flyers, (Thank you Matthew!), we also had flyers for the Environmental Nature Center and talked up their Butterfly House. I was surprised at how many locals did not know of its existence! A wonderful place to visit for tourist and locals alike!

We were able to share with everyone how inexpensive it is to join NABA – and I showed them samples of the two magazines they would receive each year as a member.  I'm sure NABA will be getting a few new members from Orange County very soon!!!

See you again next year at the annual Bugs and Butterflies Event!
