Lincolnville Community Library, 208 Main St. Maine Master Naturalist Cyrene Slegona will give a free illustrated talk on monarch butterflies and the science of their migration. Last February Slegona, who has observed and studied monarchs since she was 12, visited several of their overwintering sites in Mexico. She will present historical information on the monarch, Daneaus plexipus plexipus, and tell about current and proposed research on this butterfly. There will also be a review of its life cycle and behaviors. Attendees will learn about the best hand-rearing practices and the importance of native milkweeds and end-of-season migrator-friendly gardens.
