MONROE - The Bluebird Nest Nature Center, 308 Main St., Darlington will be presenting three programs in August.

At 7 p.m. Monday, Lorri Cwynar from Nature's Gifts Greenhouse will present a program on how to make a monarch butterfly nursery. Monarchs have decreased in number, and Cwynar will show visitors how people can help the colorful insect.

From 1 to 5 p.m. Aug. 12, the center will host Cephalopod Day. Jim Kostorhys, Darlington's expert on fossils, will bring in a piece of a 15-foot cephalopod fossil.

Later on Aug. 12, Steve Sample, a bird enthusiast from Wild Birds Unlimited in Madison, will present a program on the black-capped chickadee.

There is no charge for any programs. Refreshments are served after the speaker.

The nature center is sponsored by the Lafayette County Bluebird Society, a nonprofit organization.
