Update: monarchs and milkweed

Here is an update on monarch and milkweed happenings… Over the past few weeks I have visited several natural history venues for a modest book tour — it has gone very well, with the added pleasure of meeting some well-known citizen scientists and old friends.  It started with a Chats in the Stacks at Cornell which is now online on youtube!  On earth day I presented at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. This was followed by talks at the California Academy of Natural Sciences, Seattle Town Hall, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, and the Houston Museum of Natural Science. See pictures below.
