About the Science Matters Brown Bag Series
Science Matters Brown Bags are monthly programs co-sponsored by the Linda Hall Library and the Kansas City Public Library. The events will be held in the Helzberg Auditorium in the Central Library. They will focus on science-related topics that impact Kansas Citians. Bring your lunch and join the conversation!
The April 15 program
The monarch butterfly is one of the most iconic species in North America and a central part of efforts to protect pollinators. Angie Babbit from KU’s Monarch Watch will share strategies researchers are using to better understand monarchs’ epic migration between Mexico and Canada and how the public can participate in efforts to preserve and protect the butterfly.
Angie Babbit received her master’s degree in biology from Emporia State University, and her bachelor’s in environmental studies from the University of Kansas. She began working for Monarch Watch in 2014 and handles much of the communications with the public about monarchs and milkweed. She is also a mother, photographer, printmaker and advocate for the tall grass prairie ecosystem.
