For butterfly novices and botanists who want to complement their flower i.d. skills by learning lepidopteran pollinators. Class begins with an introduction to butterfly physiology, biology and ecology. Learn the explanations behind typical behaviors including puddling and hilltopping and why reduction of butterfly habitat and climate change have drastically impacted their populations. You’ll then see preserved Siskiyou butterfly specimens and learn some i.d. basics.
The class will net and inspect butterflies in the Deer Creek area Saturday afternoon. On Day 2, the class will travel to a high-elevation site where you’ll have the opportunity to locate and identify additional species.
