(AT) Friends of Hagerman 2nd Saturday Nature Programs
April 10 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm
Speaker: Laurie Sheppard
Description: Butterfly watching at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge and photographing these colorful, engaging insects have increased in popularity in recent years, primarily because of the installation of the Butterfly Garden. With the increased interest and added attention, since 2016, 30 new species have been verified as seen in Grayson County. One of these is the Frosted Elfin, a small spring butterfly that is being considered for listing as an Endangered Species. Come learn more about some of Grayson County’s less common butterflies and where you can see them (hint – many are not found in the Butterfly Garden).
Laurie Sheppard is a Texas Master Naturalist and a long-time member and volunteer with Friends of Hagerman. She became interested in butterfly identification and photography while living in Frisco, TX. After retiring from Hewlett Packard Enterprises, she relocated from Collin County to Grayson County so she could be closer to the refuge. Laurie enjoys searching for and learning about new butterfly species. She has created several documents and handouts to assist the Butterfly Garden Docents and inform visitors, including the Beyond the Butterfly Garden series and Weekly on the Wing. She is often present at Butterfly Garden Walks and loves to share her passion for butterflies with visitors.
