Celebrate Father’s Day by discovering the fascinating world of flies on this easy walk in Knowland Park!

Though they can certainly cause their fair share of problems, flies are extremely important pollinators, can be very beautiful, are incredibly acrobatic, and can even help solve crimes! Learn why these little critters are worth a second look.

Meet at Knowland Park at the Cameron Ave entrance (where Cameron dead-ends into the park off of Malcolm Ave). Please wear comfortable shoes and layers, and bring sun protection, water, and snacks. There are no bathroom facilities at Knowland Park!

Help CCNH continue to provide free natural history events! We suggest a $20 donation per event, no one turned away for lack of funds. You can make a donation here.
