Monarch Butterfly Ecology and the Latest News

8/18/2017 6:30PM to 8:00PM

Duke Farms Program Manager, Tanya Sulikowski, will take you on a photo journey to explore monarch ecology, identify threats to the species and learn about recent efforts to protect this charismatic butterfly. Tanya traveled to Mexico to support research in the overwintering colonies and has spent her career using monarchs as tools for education.

You’ll learn about how to get involved in citizen science programs and about small changes you can make in your home landscape to help these iconic butterflies. Maybe we’ll even see some live monarchs!
