Why Butterflies Need Volcanoes

Naturalist and award-winning author Emily Stone will share her travels to the monarch butterfly's sanctuaries in the temperate fir forest high atop the peas of the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt. In a delicate balance between staying cool enough to conserve their fat stores and warm enough not to freeze, the monarchs seek out a variety of micro-habitats even as the climate changes around them. The tangle of relationships will astonish you.
