Nature Lecture: The Amazing World of Monarch Butterflies at the Palm Springs Public Library
Presented by Barbara Rosenberg. a Penn State Master Gardener, who has specialized in monarch butterflies for twenty-five years. Many associate monarchs with their awe-inspiring migration. But their evolutionary plant partner, the milkweed, is also unique in fascinating ways! This talk will explore the relationship between Monarchs and Milkweed. We will consider how the features of milkweed have led to over one hundred species in North America–adapted for weather extremes and soil conditions from coast to coast. The talk will also cover surprising aspects of monarch metamorphosis. What occurs inside that chrysalis so that a train-like caterpillar, made to move along the ground, can transform into an air-born butterfly? And what hormone in that process has led to saving human lives? Finally, we will learn answers to these questions about the astonishing and beautiful complexity of the amazing relationship between monarch butterflies and milkweed. The program is presented in partnership with the Palm Springs Sustainability Commission.
