Helping Our Most Famous Butterfly: the Mission Blue on Twin Peaks
Guest Speaker: Liam O’Brien
7:30pm, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th, 2010
In 2009 the Natural Areas Program of SF Rec & Park collaborated with US Fish and Wildlife to fulfill part of the 1976 recovery plan for the endangered Mission Blue butterfly. Leading SF lepidopterist Liam O’Brien, was invited to be part of the team to relocate and monitor 22 females from San Bruno Mountain. Since butterfly relocation is a recent science this evening promises glorious photography and stimulating conversation.
