Things are going well on the sabbatical in Missoula, MT! On November 9th I will be speaking at a “friend-raiser” associated with the Montana Natural History Center and the Missoula Insectarium. And in December I will be speaking at Harvard’s Arnold Arboretum. Both talks will give an overview of monarchs and milkweed and an update on their current predicament. I will be signing copies of Monarchs and Milkweed at both events.
And finally, although there isn’t a lot of milkweed here in Montana, here is some withering Asclepias speciosa from the National Bison Range (September 2017). No insects were found.
