"But these are flowers that fly and all but sing…" ~ Robert Frost

Presenter: John I. Connors

Thursday, May 7th • Tyvola Senior Center (2225 Tyvola Road.) at 7:15 PM
There are few undertakings on earth that amaze and inspire us more than the epic annual migration of the Monarch Butterfly across eastern America. Join us at our May meeting as John Connors from Wake Audubon Society shares a peek into the life cycle of this species including their autumn journey, one that is fraught with peril but buoyed by optimism, and join millions of them at their winter destination in Mexico.
John I. Connors is recently retired as Coordinator of The Naturalist Center at NC Museum of Natural Sciences since 1997. Prior to 1997, he was the Naturalist and Adventure Program leader for Raleigh Parks and Recreation for 17 years. Currently he is Adjunct Instructor for NCSU Recreation, Parks & Tourism since 1987 teaching classes in Outdoor Recreation Management and Interpretation of Natural Resources. He is also a board member with Wake Audubon Society; Member, NC Nongame Advisory Board with NC Wildlife Resources Commission; Board WakeNature Preserve Partnership; Stewardship Committee for Triangle Land Conservancy; Compiler: Raleigh Christmas Bird Count, Spring Bird Count and Wake County Butterfly Counts.
