New evening lecture series: "For the Love of Butterflies: Monarch Migration" + IMAX® film Flight of the Butterflies.
Speaker Bill Toone, the director of ECOLIFE, is a widely recognized conservation biologist and spokesperson who in fact courted his wife by building a butterfly sanctuary - they haven't missed a Mexican monarch migration in 25 years. The iconic monarch butterfly is a true marvel of nature. It weighs less than a penny, yet it makes one of the longest migrations on Earth across a continent, with pinpoint navigational accuracy, to a secluded place it has never been! Join the monarchs' perilous and extraordinary journey while following an intrepid scientist's 40-year search to find the monarchs' secret hideaway. This is a special event, most likely to occur every two months. No member vouchers, discounts or coupons may be used.
