Blackstone Parks Conservancy


Join us on Saturday, July 6th at 10am to learn the difference between moths and butterflies through easy origami!  Using field guides, you can create a real local species or make up your own.  We will then look for butterflies and moths in the field.  A limited supply of host plant seeds will be available. At Blackstone Field, across from the Narragansett Boat Club (2 River Rd. aka River Dr., Providence, RI 02906).  Check the 15 Minute Field Trips Facebook page for weather updates.

Butterfly vs Moth is the first event of the Blackstone Parks Conservancy’s new “Art & Exploration” series!  Starting in July, there will be a nature-inspired art activity followed by an exploration of the park, at 10 a.m. on the first Saturday of every month! Melissa Guillet, from 15 Minute Field Trips, has taught art for over 20 years and is an avid nature-lover involved in gardening, hiking, and collecting data as a citizen scientist.  Learn about native species and how to protect them in each of the themed monthly activities!
