The 17th Annual Butterfly Identification and Monitoring Workshop is Saturday at Aullwood's Marie S. Aull Education Center, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This is for everyone from individuals who want to identify a few butterflies to long term monitors and serious lepidopterists.

Come to the Seventh Annual “No Buts About It.” This is a 5K Run/Walk and Health Fair for Colon Cancer Awareness at The Fairfield Mall. This family-friendly event is for all ages and helps raise awareness on how to prevent colorectal cancer. This is Saturday morning.

Support Women Artists Now, aka SWAN, is an international celebration of women artists that takes place on the last Saturday of Women's History Month. Celebrate this at the downtown Dayton library and enjoy the work of local women artists who will be sharing their poetry, prose, music, short films and more. Saturday, 2:00-4:00 pm

And at Gilly’s Jazz is an event called Blues in the Key of C. This features several stars and is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Doors open at 6pm and show starts at 7:00.

Bugs!...Sunday at 3 p.m. The Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and the Dayton Ballet II will join forces and go downright, well, buggy.

WYSO and filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steve Bognar have kicked off season two of ReInvention Stories. Now every Wednesday morning, a new ReInvention radio story is airing right here. Shondale Atkinson grew up as a teenage mother in Miami Valley's foster care system. As an adult, she's opened a home in Trotwood for teen moms and their children living in the foster care system and serves as an advocate for these young families.

Gotta Go….
