Maybe you’ve heard of a “Big Sit” for birds where all you do is find a spot, sit, and watch the birds around you. Let’s have one for butterflies at Kankakee Sands! No hiking in the heat required. There will be a a tent for some shade and to watch the Regal Fritillaries and Monarchs float on by. Bring a cool drink and a snack to share with friends. Don’t forget your lawn chair and your butterfly field guide. Meet at the Kankakee Sands Native Plant Nursery. Contact Alyssa Nyberg (, 219-866-1706) or Marilyn Diller ( for more information.
