Western Mountains: February Meeting & Program

  • 7:00 PM
  • Frostburg State University, Compton Science Center, Room 327

Topic: Monarch Butterflies, Culture and Conservation 

Speaker: Caroline Blizzard, Director of the Deep Creek Lake Discovery Center

The miracle of the monarch butterfly migration brings diverse cultures and conservation together. Adults and children in Garrett County and Mexico have come to know each other and understand they are working together thousands of miles apart for the same goal. The goal of conservation of a single insect and conservation issues they both have in common. Join us as we present cultural, conservation, and environmental connections we have come to understand through our tagging program, travels to the over-wintering sites in Mexico, on-line student blog, and pen pal program. 

This free program will begin promptly at 7:00 pm; the public is welcome to attend.

Directions: From I-68 take exit 33 (Braddock Rd & Midlothian Rd exit). Follow Braddock Road approximately 1.3 miles to stop sign. Turn left onto Park Avenue. Drive a short distance and turn left, following signs for the Compton Parking Lot.

No registration.
