North Park will play host to a pair of program next Saturday morning for people interested in home brewing and unlocking the mysteries of the monarch butterfly.

• The Home Brew Workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on April 21 at the Rose Barn.

Experienced members of Three Rivers Underground Brewers will teach basic techniques to brew great beer at home. The workshop includes a two hour lecture followed by a hands-on introduction to home brew equipment.

Participants must be 21 or older.

The program will be followed by a home brewing demonstration and sampling from noon to 6 p.m.

The cost is $50 for residents and $62 for non-residents.

More information and registration is available online.

• A program on the behavior of the monarch butterfly is scheduled for 10 a.m. to noon at the Latrobe Shelter.

Topics will include why monarchs travel to the same locations each year, the paths they use and how such small creatures can travel such great distances.

Kimberly Vensel — the Butler Butterfly Lady — will lead the program.

The cost is $5 for residents and $6 for non-residents.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
