Cakes at the Lake series begins at Hunt Hill

The opening program in the 2013 Cakes at the Lake environmental and nature series is Saturday at Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary east of Sarona.
Butterflies of Wisconsin will be presented by Mike Reese of "wisconsinbutterflies.org" and Hunt Hill program director Nikki Nelson.
The Cakes at the Lake series is sponsored by the Long Lake Preservation Assn. The free programs on wildlife and natural resources are intended for all ages.
Each Cakes at the Lake event begins with breakfast, including pancakes, from 8-9:45 a.m. at Hunt Hill's nature center, followed by the program at 10 a.m.
The charge for breakfast is $7 for adults or $3 for ages 5-12.
Those not taking part in breakfast are invited to the program, for which there is no charge.
At Saturday's program, Reese and Nelson will lead an hour-long visual presentation on the types of butterflies found in Wisconsin.
Following the program, participants have the option of joining Reese on a hike through the Hunt Hillp prairie to identify butterflies in flight.
Remaining programs in the Saturday series include The Lives of Wolves, Coyotes and Fox on June 29, Eagles on July 20, The Most Exotic Species on Aug. 17 and Rafter of Turkeys on Sept. 7.
The June 29 program on wolves, coyotes and fox is led by Stan Tekiela. The eagle program on July 20 is put on by the National Eagle Center.
Kevin McMullin leads the Aug. 17 program on exotic species, and Scott Walter of the Department of Natural Resources presents the Sept. 7 feature on turkeys.
At each breakfast/program, Long Lake Preservation Assn. items, including clothing, will be on sale, in addition to a Wisconsin lakes trivia game. Literature on Hunt Hill summer camps and lakeshore living will also be available.
Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary is located on the west side of Long Lake off Audubon Road, which goes west off Hwy. M.
