“Basic Butterfly Biology”
On Wednesday, May 16, the Spokane chapter of WBA enthusiastically welcomes its own scientific advisor and internationally recognized lepidopterist, Jonathan Pelham, to speak with us about “Basic Butterfly Biology”. Jon is curator of UW Burke Museum’s extensive arthropod collection. He is an enthusiastic speaker, an excellent field biologist and has authored and co-authored numerous publications on butterflies, including the taxonomic “Catalog of North American Butterflies” and several recent articles in the Journal of the Lepidopterist’s Society. He is currently at work developing an extensive, searchable and detailed mapping system for all verified sightings of Washington State’s 150+ butterfly species. Our keen local butterfly observers may be invited to share some of their own sightings for this new system. Please came and learn how butterflies live, about how to conserve them, and what you can do to get your own observations into the record!
