Name: Monarchs: A Vanishing Species
Date: August 2, 2019
Time: 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM EDT
Monarch Butterflies are one of the most iconic species you can find in your own backyard. These beautiful orange visitors have enchanted us as children and into our adult years. Unfortunately, these awesome creatures of change are facing incredible population losses. With around 90% having vanished in recent years, we can play our part by raising young caterpillars in our own homes. This hour long lecture will focus on the life cycle of a monarch butterfly and how you can start raising and, eventually, releasing them back into the wild. Admission includes the 7 p.m. showing of "Oceans: Our Blue Planet." For more information and a schedule of upcoming Longway events visit sloanlongway.org.
