General Meeting

March 14 @ 5:30 pm

CANCELED DUE TO COVID-19 – Update on the Regal Fritillary ButterflySteve Buback, Missouri Department of Conservation. Potluck dinner at 5:30 (please bring a dish to share); Program begins around 6:45. The gorgeous Regal Fritillary butterfly cannot exist without intact tallgrass prairies and native violets to feed its caterpillars. Biologists struggle not only to preserve and manage its habitat but to ascertain just how many butterflies remain in Missouri–and where. A decision to determine whether Regals will be officially listed as federally endangered is expected by 2022. Steve will discuss the life history, population status, and recent research related to these “prairie paparazzi”.
