Monarch Butterfly Tagging

September 3 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Washington Crossing Historic Park, 1112 River Road
Washington Crossing, PA 18977 United States

The Monarch Butterfly is arguably one of the most interesting insect species in North America.  This butterfly is the only species of butterfly to make a two-way migration, similar to birds, in order to survive as a species.  Many of these butterflies travel 3,000 miles to their over wintering destination in Central Mexico.

On Saturday, September 3 from 10 to…

September 18 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Washington Crossing Historic Park, 1112 River Road
Washington Crossing, PA 18977 United States

On Sunday, September 18 at 1:30 PM, join author Aaron Sullivan as he discusses his book The Disaffected. He will explore the British occupation of Philadelphia, chronicling the experiences of a group of people who were pursued, pressured, and at times persecuted, not because they chose the wrong side of the Revolution but because they tried not to choose a side at all. For these people, the war was neither a glorious cause to be won nor an unnatural rebellion to be suppressed, but a dangerous and costly calamity to be navigated with care. Both the Patriots and the British…
