Bring your mug and take a stroll among the butterflies!

GARNA will be hosting two more butterfly walks! Bring your mug and join us for a morning coffee walk with the butterflies along the Monarch Spur trail.

This walk will be led by butterfly ecologist, Sara Simonson. Sara is a graduate student in Watershed Science at Colorado State University (CSU), and she worked as a Research Associate at CSU’s Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory for 20 years. Since completing a master’s degree in butterfly ecology and conservation, Sara has worked on a variety of research and teaching projects involving Colorado’s diverse wildflowers and butterflies. Sara is interested in biological conservation, methods for field data collection, distributions of native and non-native species, and patterns of natural and human disturbances in mountain ecosystems. Sara’s latest projects are focused on using biological indicators to extend historical timelines and better understand ecology in snow systems. She is also an advocate for pollinators and encouraging public participation in science.

Stop by Bunny & Clyde's between 8 and 8:30am to get a free cup of coffee with your mug (find Katie!).

We will meet in the parking lot between Safeway and the Monarch Spur trail at 8:30 am for a butterfly ecology lesson from Sara, then hit the trail for our walk around 9 am.
