Join us for an exciting presentation give by Betty Nickles at the Pine Hollow Arboretum Visitor Center at 16 Maple Avenue Slingerlands, NY 12159.

Butterflies are beautiful, delicate and often elusive creatures.  Their lives are unique and their skills are amazing.  This slide presentation will begin with a discussion of the remarkable characteristics of butterflies.  There will be an emphasis on local species: their life cycles, host and nectaring plants, and survival techniques in regard to natural enemies and winter weather.


Betty Nickles is a retired professor of biology and physics.  Since retiring, she has become an avid naturalist and nature photographer - spending much time visiting local nature areas and preserves, studying and photographing the native flora and fauna.  She has a special love for butterflies and moths.
