Presented by Debbie Jackson, Monarch Watch Conservation Specialist

From the time millions of years ago to today, monarchs and their Danaus cousins have brightly colored the Earth, their caterpillars eating Asclepias leaves from Africa to Asia, both North and South America and now southern Europe. These tropical butterflies have perfected their lifecycle by performing the longest insect migration known.

Once, clouds of orange wings darkened the sky as they soared south to the Mexican states of Michoac?n and Mexico but today, they are a mere 5-10% of their previous healthy population. Come and explore their wonders and find out what difference you can make to preserve this wonder.

The public is welcome and encouraged to attend this free event (donations welcome to help bring future educational opportunities)! Doors open at 7 pm, and the presentation starts at 7:30.

A flyer that you can print and distribute is available here.
