“Where Have All the Monarchs Gone and What We Can Do About It?” by Maraleen Manos-Jones.
Environmental activist and master gardener Maraleen Manos-Jones is known as the “Butterfly Woman” as she has been raising, tagging, and releasing butterflies for over forty years. She is the author of The Spirit of Butterflies: Myth, Magic & Art, published by Harry Abrams. Manos-Jones was the first non-native woman to find the monarchs’ overwintering habitats in Mexico in 1977 after a two month search in the mountains, and she has returned to Mexico ever since working with the mountain people, helping to plant over six million trees around the monarch sanctuaries. She will share up-to-date information about the challenges the monarchs face and what concerned people living in the United States can do to help protect them.
“Maraleen is a great, impassioned, enthusiastic speaker, with fabulous stories and slides,” says Vivian Wachsberger, co-chair of Hidden Gardens. “The talk will be informative, educational, and entertaining.”
