Butterflies without Borders: Monarch Butterflies and our Changing Climate, a scientific symposium.

Butterflies know no walls, but recent changes in our political landscape have created divisions throughout the Monarch butterfly corridor while temperatures throughout the continent continue to escalate to unprecedented levels, year after year. What do these political and atmospheric changes bode for pollinator advocacy, the Monarch butterfly migration in particular?

Join us for a lively and timely discussion that will explore the intersections and consequences of politics and pollinators.

General admission: $15
Rivard Report Members: $10
Pollinator Posse Sponsors: $10
Student tickets: $5
