The best part about these efforts is that anyone can do them! Join biologist Professor Eric H. Diefenbacher (SUNY Morrisville) as he gives a tutorial on best practices in rearing and tagging monarch butterflies and the citizen science efforts behind saving this species. This program is Free and brought to you by the Otis Thompson Foundation. Maximum attendance is 15 people. Participants can register by emailing info@friendsofrogers.org or call 607-674-4733.
