Join us at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center for the new evening lecture series: “For the Love of Butterflies: Monarch Migration” + IMAX® film Flight of the Butterflies.

Speaker Bill Toone, the director of ECOLIFE, is a widely recognized conservation biologist and spokesperson who in fact courted his wife by building a butterfly sanctuary—they haven’t missed a Mexican monarch migration in 25 years.

The iconic monarch butterfly is a true marvel of nature. It weighs less than a penny, yet it makes one of the longest migrations on Earth across a continent, with pinpoint navigational accuracy, to a secluded place it has never been! Join the monarchs' perilous and extraordinary journey while following an intrepid scientist’s 40-year search to find the monarchs’ secret hideaway.

This is a special event, most likely to occur every two months. No member vouchers, discounts or coupons may be used. 6PM IMAX film, lecture to follow.
