Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and concerns, Nature Manitoba will be implementing the following:

1. All attendees must show proof of double vaccination upon entry.

2. Masks must be worn at all times inside the Franco-Manitoban Cultural Centre.

3. Events will be held in a larger room (with triple our regular capacity) to accomodate social distancing.

4. No refreshments will be served at these events.

The Poweshiek skipperling is one the rarest and most endangered animals in Canada – and most people don’t know it lives right here in Manitoba! In this presentation, you will learn about this tiny, fascinating butterfly, the threats it faces, and the collaborative efforts underway to save it from extinction. You will also learn about other endangered Manitoba butterflies and what you can do to help.
