Wanda DeWaard shared her vast knowledge of butterflies with a group of Smoky Mountain Field School participants today in the Cades Cove area of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

A light rain forced everyone onto the cozy front porch at the Elijah Oliver Place, but it didn’t dampen their enthusiasm for learning about the colorful and fluttery insects.

DeWaard has been involved in tagging monarchs for about 14 years. She invited the participants back to the National Park next month to assist her with a tagging project.
