May 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Bring Back the Monarch Migration – What can citizens do to conserve monarchs?
Join us for a great presentation on the most favorite of butterflies…the monarch! The monarch butterfly migration has been in decline and has reached all-time lows in the last 5 years. Angie Babbit of Monarch Watch will discuss what has contributed to this decline, and what citizens can do to help conserve the species in their area. She will also explain the phenomenon of the migration, or rather FOUR annual migrations, of the monarch butterfly in the eastern United States.
Angie has been with Monarch Watch since 2014 and handles much of the communications with the public about monarchs and milkweed. She administers the Free Milkweeds for Schools and Nonprofits grant and distributes flats of milkweed through partner nurseries in five states, including Texas. She is also a mother, photographer, relief printmaker and advocate for the tall grass prairie ecosystem.
