Monarch Butterfly: Conservation of a Migratory Insect

The monarch butterfly is being considered for listing under the U.S. Endangered Species Act because of precipitous population declines caused by several mostly human-caused factors. What is being done to conserve this iconic American species in the United States and Mexico? What can citizens do to aid in its conservation and recovery? Led by Wildlife Biologist Sue Olcott, this program will present current information on the monarch and the challenges it faces. Most appropriate for adults. $5 for WVBG members, $15 for non-members.
