Creating a Haven for Butterflies: Your Own Yard and Beyond

August 29, 2015 @ 10:30 am

Welcoming butterflies into our landscapes is personally rewarding and environmentally important. As more and more habitat is lost, learn how your yard can become a beautiful oasis that sustains the butterfly species that live in your area. This workshop will focus on why using native host and nectar plants is important and how to incorporate these plants into your landscape.

Sara Bright and Paulette Ogard have spent almost two decades documenting the life histories of more than 100 species of southeastern butterflies. In 2010, their fieldwork culminated in the publication of Butterflies of Alabama: Glimpses into Their Lives by the University of Alabama Press. Through Sara’s photographs and Paulette’s words, the book chronicles the life histories of 84 species of Alabama butterflies and the plants on which they depend. They continue to work together on butterfly-related projects.

This event is not hosted by ASAN. As one of ASAN’s roles is to share information and resources across our network so as to maximize all of our impact, we routinely post events that we ourselves are not hosting. If you have questions regarding this event, please contact event organizers rather than ASAN.
