Join us on Wednesday, May 19 at 7:00pm as we learn more about Monarch butterflies with Court Whelan!
One of the world's most astounding wildlife events occurs each year in Mexico's Central Highlands, featuring the most delicate of creatures. As we enter a grove of fir trees on a remote mountaintop, the trunks and branches appear to be blanketed with rusty autumn leaves. A closer look reveals they’re quivering. Then, as the sun emerges from behind a cloud to warm them, hundreds of thousands of monarch butterflies take to the sky—so many that we actually hear the beating of their wings, which glow translucent orange against the blue sky. Experience this moving phenomenon as Court Whelan takes us on a virtual tour of monarch magic.
