August Meeting 
Bill Toone
The Roar of the Monarch Butterfly
Monday,  August 08  5:30 PM  - 8:00 PM

The monarch butterfly is the most recognizable butterfly in the world. Learn more about the relationship between plants and butterflies and follow along on the  remarkable long distance, multi-generational migration of the monarch butterfly. Bill shares insights into one of Nature's poorly understood and critically threatened miracles.  Within a short generation of its discovery this migration is now in danger extinction.  There are many elements associated with the decline of the monarch butterfly but only one of them kills thousands of people and hundreds of thousands to millions of butterflies on an annual basis in Mexico.  Wrapped into the monarchs life history is an ancient oyamel fir forest, a watershed resource for the largest city in the world and the home to amazing people of Tarascan descent.  The future of millions upon millions of lives are tied into one fabric that is unraveling at a frightening pace.  

Doors open at 5:30.  Come early to enjoy our new social hour and check out our new location.

Presentations start at 6:45
