Monarchs, Milkweeds –– and You!

May 12, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Monarch Advocates of Central Oregon want to see more iconic Monarch butterflies in Central Oregon and invite you to learn about the Monarch’s migration through our area and find out how you can support them through local habitat restoration, citizen science projects, and more!

Speakers include Katya Spiecker, founder of Monarch Advocates of Central Oregon; US Forest Service geneticist Matt Horning, David James, Associate Professor of entomology at Washington State University, and Tom Landis with Southwest Oregon Monarch Advocates. Spiecker will highlight local conservation work; Horning will cover the regional monitoring project; James will discuss the Western Monarch Tagging Program; and Landis will talk about tagging and citizen science in Southern Oregon.

Doors open at 6pm. This is a free event. Please RSVP for event.

If you can’t get enough about Monarchs, we encourage you to join the Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory for Bringing Monarchs Back to Central Oregon on May 10th. Find more information here.

Presented by Monarch Advocates of Central Oregon, Sunriver Nature Center and Great Old Broads for Wilderness.
