    Not sure what a skipper is? Chances are, one of these little insects has fluttered by you on a lazy Gunflint Trail day without you even noticing. This year, hone your butterfly, moth, and skipper identification skills by visiting Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center’s special exhibit: “Butterflies, Skippers, and Moths of the Gunflint Trail.”

    Temporary exhibit chair Betty Hemstad worked with Youngstown State University entomology professor emeritus David MacLean to prepare this year’s exhibit. The exhibit features beautiful specimens from David’s collection and an in-depth look at the Gunflint Trail’s members of the Lepidoptera order of insects.
