Mystical Monarchs: Migration and Conservation of the Monarch Butterfly
September 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join our very own Mike Callahan to learn about the migration and conservation of Monarch butterflies! These amazing insects migrate up to 2,000 miles between their wintering grounds in Mexico and their breeding grounds in the United States and Canada. But over the last twenty years, the eastern population has suffered an 80 percent decline. Learn what is being done, and what you can do, to help them.
Mike is a naturalist and co-chairman of Cobb Island’s annual Monarch Mania butterfly festival. He has been tagging Monarchs as part of a community science project during the fall migration for more than ten years.
Instead of in-person meetings this fall, Southern Maryland Audubon Society is hosting virtual lectures using Zoom. We will send invitations via email with a link for joining each online event.
