Lepidopterist Victor DeMasi is a curatorial affiliate at the Yale Peabody
Museum of Natural History. With photos on PowerPoint, he will take the audience on a sunny day walk through his butterfly meadow in Redding, Connecticut. Along the way we will view some of the rare and common species he has seen there in 40 years of stewardship. He will explain the life histories of some species. He will discuss butterflies in our changing environment, touching on issues such as climate change and invasive plant species. He will bring an impressive display of specimens of museum quality.
