Monarch butterflies are one of the best known and beloved butterflies in North America.  Many see their yearly arrival as a welcoming sign of the change in season from spring to summer.  Known for their long-distance seasonal migration to Mexico and California, the monarch butterfly population has recently declined to dangerously low levels.

Join conservationist, Jennifer Baker of The Monarch Movement, LLC, for this presentation on the amazing Monarch butterfly.  See the eggs, larve, chrysalides and butterflies in portable enclosures. There will be an outdoor butterfly release following the lecture.

This program will be in the Library’s lower-level meeting room followed by the outdoor butterfly release. Families are welcome to attend. Registration is appreciated, but not required.  Scroll down to register  or call the library at 734-426-4477, (ext 120).

This program is part of the Dexter District Library’s yearlong Bicentennial program – “We Are Dexter.” Every month from January through December the Library will host a program featuring individuals and groups that make up the Dexter community. These presentations will include artists, authors, musicians and individuals who have a hobby, talent, experience or story that makes them part of the fabric of our town.
