Lecture and Booksigning - Natural History of Butterflies by Steve Cary
Why are butterflies so beautiful? Why are some species as common as dirt, while others can be seen only after mounting carefully planned expeditions to remote locations? Where do butterflies go in winter? Using his beautiful photos, Steve will illuminate the secret treasures of New Mexico's butterflies.
Steve's new book Butterfly Landscapes of New Mexico will be available for purchase at NatureWorks that evening; and Steve will sign books after the lecture.
