The Mystery Of Monarch Metamorphosis

Presenter:  Stephen Lyn Bales

Registration is required for this free event. Register here

Join the Arboretum Society for our First Thursday Nature Supper Club on Thursday, July 1st as we learn about monarch metamorphosis. You provide your own stay-at-home supper, and we provide the nature as local naturalist Stephen Lyn Bales will entertain and teach us via Zoom. According to “Scientific American,” over 80 percent of all life on Earth are insects with over 50 percent of those going through complete metamorphosis.  It happens all around our homes all throughout the year, but few of us ever witness it.  Bales will show us both monarch butterfly metamorphosis and migration and follow one monarch he documented with his camera from egg to first flight.
