Event description

Description

Each fall, millions of monarch butterflies from the United States and Canada embark on an ardous journey to the forests of Michoacán, Mexico. During this incredible journey, monarchs travel around 2,800 miles and encounter countless obstacles. Join Dr. Stephen Malcolm, chemical ecologist and professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Western Michigan University, as he explores how and why monarchs migrate and the impact of the threats they face as they negotiate ecosystems dominated by human activities.
