Nature on Tap: The Monarch and its Migration
February 27 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The monarch is the best known butterfly species in the world. Its life cycle is closely tied to its amazing migration. Join the Peggy Notebaert Nature Musuem for a discussion on both the life cycle and the migration as well as discussing the butterfly’s behavior on its wintering grounds in Mexico, efforts both in Mexico and Illinois to track population fluctuations, and conservation issues surrounding the monarch. Learn what you can do from your own home to aid in conserving this iconic insect.
