Butterflies for Birders


Speaker: Bryan Pfeiffer

Date: Wednesday, April 25, 2018

Time: 6:30 P.M.

Location: Richmond Free Library, Bridge St., Richmond, VT

Long before birds showed up on Planet Earth, insects were already on the wing. They invented flight. Four hundred millions years later, butterfly diversity puts bird diversity to shame. Name a color or pattern or behavior — you’ll find it expressed in these gossamer insects. And it all plays out at your feet. In this program, Bryan Pfeiffer brings you the skills for discovering and enjoying butterflies (with a brief detour to moths, which are about 20 times more diverse than butterflies).

This program is free and open to the public. The Richmond Free Library is located on Bridge St. in Richmond. Free parking is available on site.
