Last year a documentary filmmaker visited Newton to film segments of the History Channel documentary "America: Promised Land." We've just been told that the documentary will air on May 29 and 30 so we're partnering with the Warkentin House to host a lecture by Dr. David Moon, Professor of History, University of York (United Kingdom) on the influences of the Russian and Ukrainian steppes on the transformation of the American Plains from grasslands to an agricultural region. This will also be your last chance to see Kauffman Museum's 2016-2017 special exhibit "Memory Matters: Works by Gesine Janzen" which will close that day!

Butterfly Count

Kauffman Museum

Kauffman Museum

Saturday June 17, 2017, 8:30am to 4:00pm

Saturday June 17, 2017

Greetings Butterfly Enthusiasts, Be sure to mark your calendars for Saturday, June 17 as the first scheduled count date and Saturday, July 1 as a backup date in case of inclement weather on the 17th. The Marvin Schwilling Butterfly Count at Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve near Strong City is on Saturday, June 24, so put that on your calendar as well. We will meet at Kauffman Museum (27th and Main in North Newton) at 8:30 a.m. on June 17. If you can participate all day, bring a sack lunch for noon. We must charge a fee of $3 per participant for the count which is sent to the North American Butterfly Association (NABA) in order to participate in the national count program. The fee can be paid on the day of the count. NABA’s policy is that all observers, regardless of their age, who contribute to the count, must be listed as observers and pay the count fee. However, children who are accompanied by an adult and who do not significantly contribute as observers will not be listed as observers and do not pay. Please reply to me about your ability to participate this year at brad.guhr@hesston.edu, cell 316-217-4566, or snail mail at 725 N Ash St., Newton, KS 67114. Indicate whether you can participate all day or half day and whether you would be able to be the leader of a group. Do not hesitate to participate because you cannot identify all butterflies. There will be a leader in your group who can identify butterflies and this will be a good learning experience for you. I am sending this notice to all who have participated in past counts and to others who might be interested. If you know of other persons who would be interested in the count, let them know about it and give me their contact information. NABA will again this year publish a report book with lists from all of the counts. This book can be ordered at the time of the count if you would like to receive a copy. The price is $11 for NABA members and $16 for nonmembers. Hope to see you on the count. Brad Guhr Compiler
