Make your own butterfly kite

Posted: Tuesday, Jul 29th, 2014

People are invited to construct Japanese-style butterfly kites on Thursday, Aug. 7, with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service volunteer Lee Sliman, who will provide instructions and free materials. The event will be held at the Connie Hansen Garden, 1931 NW 33rd St., Lincoln City.

At Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge, work is underway to restore coastal prairie habitat for the federally threatened Oregon Silverspot Butterfly. While making their kites, people will learn about efforts to save the Silverspot Butterfly and how they can get involved.
