From 7pm until 8pm
The monarch butterfly population has declined by 90% over the past two decades, and the species is currently being reviewed for federal protection under the Endangered Species Act. Key threats to the species include loss of overwintering habitat in Mexico, loss of breeding habitat in the US and Canada, climate change, and disease. New Hampshire is one of many states across the species range to include the Monarch in their state wildlife action plan as a species of greatest conservation need. Monarchs represent one of the largest conservation efforts ever for a single species and there are many ways for individuals, communities, and conservation organizations to get involved. This workshop will explore monarch ecology and life cycles, information on conservation actions for monarchs and other pollinators, and an introduction to citizen science programs to help monitor the species.
