Amazing Butterflies: Nature’s Gift to Us
How do butterflies know which plants to lay their eggs on? How do butterflies avoid predators? How is a butterfly’s vision different from that of a human? Are butterflies important to birds? Learn more about monarch and other butterfly species from Richard L. James, a naturalist at Long Beach’s El Dorado Nature Center. James will show a PowerPoint presentation with plenty of pictures and video.
James has been involved with native plant restoration efforts at the nature center since 2004, and conducts an annual butterfly count for the North American Butterfly Association and monthly counts for the Irvine Ranch Conservancy in Limestone Canyon.
Join us for this informative speaker on Thursday, May 18th, at 7:30p.m. at El Dorado Nature Center, 7550 E. Spring St., Long Beach (between Los Alamitos Blvd. and Studebaker Rd.) Parking is free and light refreshments will be served. Please bring recyclable aluminum cans/plastic bottles with caps removed to help support chapter activities. Hope to see you there!
