Invite a Monarch to Lunch-Conference Room at Visitor Center

 This event has already occurred.

Pollinators have been in the news lately because of the dramatic drop in the numbers scientists and citizens have observed and reported data on for the last few years. Learn all about the Monarch butterfly and what we can do to help bring it back. Registration is encouraged for this free program.

Monarchs are an iconic and well-loved species, the state insect of seven different states. The monarch is the only butterfly to make a two-way migration. Currently, the migration is listed as “an endangered natural phenomena”.
Our speaker Trecia Neal, Biologist and Monarch Watch Conservation Specialist at Fernbank Science Center, will discuss the biology and ecology of the monarch, why the migration is endangered, as well as current conservation efforts and how you can help.
