Monarch presentation: Migration to Mexico

342 days old

Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Activities: Insect study, Nature study, Wildlife conservation
Location: Newport SP

In Feb. 2013, Marilyn and Phil Hansotia joined Mary and Dick Smythe on a trip to the Mexican wintering grounds for the North American Monarchs residing east of the Rocky Mountains. The trip was led by Dr. Tom Emmel, Professor of Entomology at the University of Florida, Gainesville. A well-known entomologist, he has led numerous trips to the Monarch Mexican wintering grounds. Visiting two different wintering sites, Marilyn and Dick will share their experience of this astounding and unique phenomenon. Nowhere in the world is such an event duplicated. Join us in the Nature Center for this presentation.
