Event Description

MARCH PROGRAM

Tuesday, March 1 at 7:30 PM

Butterflies and moths are abundant insects found in many habitats. Yet few people know they are closely related to Caddis Flies. Both insect groups evolved when dinosaurs roamed the Earth in the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Fossils of early moths are found in around the world, while in the United States, the first butterfly fossil was discovered in Colorado. Barbara Coleman, Western Cuyahoga member and a member of the Ohio Lepidopterists, will present the program, Evolution of Flying Flowers. She will also touch on information regarding the decline in Monarch and other butterfly populations which has led to increased research to discover the cause.
