Milkweed, Monarchs and Climate Change

September 18, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Monarch butterflies are beloved by the public because they are common, beautiful and have a fascinating and unique migratory life cycle! Georgetown University ecologist, Leslie Ries, will talk about the decline of the monarchs and what a warmer future may mean for their migratory population. The lecture will be followed by a naturalist led walk to see butterflies in action!

Leslie Ries is an ecologist who focuses on patterns at both medium and large scales. She has worked both in the fields of landscape ecology and biogeography with her focus mainly on butterflies. Click here to learn more.
