This week hundreds of millions of Monarch butterflies from the eastern two-thirds of North America are creating massive overwintering roosts at 10,000 feet in the oyamel fir forests of Michoacan, Mexico. They have never seen these overwintering places before and they never will again.
On Tuesday, November 12, at 4:00 p.m. (in the Calkins Auditorium) Dr. Matthew Douglas will deliver an informational and summary talk on how our Monarch butterflies find the overwintering roosts over 2,000 miles from their birth places in Canada and the northern tier states of the United States.
It’s definitely not what you think, and some of this research was conducted at GRCC and is currently being published.
All are welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
