Butterfly and Dragonfly Festival part of Carolinian Canada 30/30 Challenge

What: The 5th Annual Butterfly and Dragonfly Festival on July 13th in Norfolk. This year the festival is part of a larger event series - Carolinian Canada's 30/30 Vision Campaign. Visitors are invited to drop by Carolinian Canada's 30/30 table to learn more about the natural beauty of southern Ontario. It's a great opportunity to pick up a passport to track event attendance in this exciting, nature-themed series. Sharing stories about your connection with nature and joining a 30/30 challenge are also ways to participate.

Who: Carolinian Canada, a registered charity, has launched the 30/30 vision campaign, a year long celebration of Carolinian Canada. The 30/30 Vision Campaign contains a passport to events throughout the zone, a collection of stories and visions for the future and a fun personal challenge. The Butterfly and Dragonfly Festival, organized by Nature's Calling Environmental Education, is part of the event series.

Who should attend: This is a family-friendly event and is open to everyone.

Where: Backus Heritage Conservation Area near Port Rowan. Admission into the park is $13/carload and will give access to all the activities throughout the day.

When: July 13, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

More information about Carolinian Canada's 30/30 Vision Campaign: The 30/30 Vision Campaign offers Ontarians a chance to learn about the natural beauty in The Carolinian Life Zone through a fun and interactive series of events, stories and challenges. The Carolinian Life Zone, otherwise fondly known as the nation's "Banana Belt" or "Canada's Deep South" is a hotbed of plant and animal life. It ranks as the most highly biodiverse spot in all of Canada. Unfortunately, over 500 of the species found here are listed as rare, endangered or threatened.

Here are some of the ways to participate.

Celebrate with community: Get your 30/30Passport to explore Canada's Deep South as our community hosts a year of events across the Zone. Tally your adventures for the chance to win prizes!

Challenge yourself: Experience the wonder of Carolinian Canada this year. Set yourself a 30/30 nature challenge, raise funds and motivate awareness.

Change the future and inspire action: What sustains your sense of place in Carolinian Canada? Share your stories and visions for next 30 to 300 years. Join our community to advance a science-based Big Picture conservation strategy to create a green future and address urgent threats, together.
