"Mitigating the Plight of the Monarch"
On Wednesday, May 27 at 6 pm Sandy Belth, Assistant Naturalist with Monroe County Parks and Recreation and organizer of Bug Fest, will present a talk entitled, "Mitigating the Plight of the Monarch". Since 1996 there has been a sharp decline of the species Danaus plexipus, the Monarch butterfly in direct correspondence to increased use of agricultural herbicides. In this session we will highlight the plight of the Monarch and why it's migration is considered an endangered phenomenon. Discussion will focus on what is being done to mitigate its demise and how you can help.
