Due to reduced staffing, Bandelier will host one session of "Daycamp for Kids" this summer. Daycamp is a fun but educational way for kids to learn more about Bandelier's diverse resources. For summer 2014 Daycamp will be held Weds 6/18 - Sat 6/21. Participants must have completed the first grade. Due to high demand and limited space, a child can only attend Daycamp once in their life. Daycamp meets in front of the visitor center and runs from 830 AM to 12 Noon Thursday through Saturday. Family and friends of the daycamper are invited to join the activities on Saturday. Daycamp is free but you must reserve your spot early. Reservations can be made at anytime. To make a reservation, call Chris Judson at (505)672-3861 x 513 or e-mail her .

Queen butterflies are often mistaken for Monarchs because they look so much alike. This is beneficial to the Queen, who is avoided by predators who fear this look-alike may be as toxic as the Monarch.
