Monarchs in a Changing World: How These Butterflies Bring Us Together, part of the Spirit & Place Festival

September 13 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Monarchs go through the ultimate change when they metamorphosize from caterpillar to chrysalis and finally the beloved butterfly we all recognize. Attendees will assist in the completion of a mural designed by local artist Megan Jefferson while learning how to help increase the population of monarch butterflies. We will discuss how the monarch is a flagship species that improves the visibility of other conservation goals.
