The Museum and its partners host many lectures at the Museum.
Join Dr. Stuart Weiss as he discusses how the altered environment of the 21st century has affected two butterfly species, the monarch and the checkerspot. He suggests that simply protecting habitat and hands-off management may no longer be effective.
