Urban Butterfly Initiative

Post by 58chevy »

The Urban Butterfly Initiative, presented by Dr. Paul Switzer.

Getting people to notice, understand, and value nature is a key challenge in today's ever more urban and technological world. In his presentation, Paul Switzer will explain the genesis of the Urban Butterfly Initiative, a community service nonprofit he founded in 2018 that uses butterflies as the hook for broader conservation, environmental education, and community building goals across communities in Central Illinois.

Dr. Paul Switzer received his Ph.D. from the University of California-Davis and is currently a Professor of Biology at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois. He has published 60 research and teaching articles. He started the Grand Prairie Butterfly Club in 2003 and in 2018 he founded the Urban Butterfly Initiative, 501(c)3 nonprofit, for which he currently serves as Director.

I joined it yesterday. A bit slow, but good insights into planning butterfly gardens.
