May 15, 7:00PM-8:00PM

Nature Conservancy talk will examine the plight of monarch butterflies and explore possible conservation solutions.

Come learn about the remarkable migration of monarch butterflies and the long-term decline in their abundance. What are the causes of this downward population trend? What exciting conservation initiatives are underway to counter the decline? Dr. Williams will examine these questions and discuss how the monarch’s struggle for survival mirrors that of other butterfly species in our region. Jim Howe, The Nature Conservancy’s director in Central & Western New York, will also share how conservation initiatives can help butterfly populations.

A biologist at Hamilton College for the past 30 years, Dr. Ernest Williams studies the population biology and conservation of butterflies. His fieldwork has focused on studying monarch butterflies in their Mexican overwintering sites, frosted elfin butterflies in the sandplains of Central New York, and checkerspot butterflies in Rocky Mountain meadows. His books include The Nature Handbook: A Guide to Observing the Great Outdoors. Williams is also co-author of The Stokes Butterfly Book.
