Preschoolers learn about monarch butterflies at a local nature center in Sioux City

SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – The Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center held its monthly ‘Nature Tales’ on Tuesday,  where preschoolers and their families take part in story time and a nature walk.

The theme was monarch butterflies, because according to the center’s naturalist, the monarchs currently are in their peak migration time.

Nature Tales began with story time.

The preschoolers heard a story and learned about monarch butterflies.

After the story, the children created butterfly-themed arts and crafts, which was followed by a nature hike to look for monarch butterflies.

“I just think it’s a great way to get parents involved with their kids in nature. Get us connected to the outdoors, and what is around us,” said Theresa Kruid, a naturalist at Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center.

Nature Tales takes place every month at the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center.

It the event is free of charge and open to the public.
