"Monarch Biology and Conservation"

"Monarch Biology and Conservation" speaker program is being held on Wednesday, February 6th, 2019, beginning 7:30 pm at the Royal Oak Middle School (709 N. Washington). Monarchs used to dance in our gardens but today, it's hard to find them. They face perils in nature and the changing landscape from human progress has made their numbers and future survival uncertain. Monarch caterpillars depend on one type of food source which isn't favored by farmers and is eradicated for its toxic content and habit of spreading. Yet, it's the state butterfly for many. A recent movement has sprung up to take steps to conserve this magnificent migrating butterfly. Debbie Johnson, Monarch Watch Conservation Specialist, will spend time looking at biology, migration, natural enemies, manmade threats to its survival and easy methods that anyone can do to help them survive.
