About The Event

In collaboration with the Alameda County Resource Conservation District, the SF Bay Chapter is excited to present a symposium on the ecology, management and regulation of three at risk grassland-associated butterfly species: the Callippe silverspot (Speyeria callippe callippe), Bay checkerspot (Euphydryas editha bayensis) and Monarch (Danaus plexippus). The Callippe and Bay checkerspot are both listed as federally endangered and threatened, respectively; the monarch is currently undergoing USFWS status review for listing under the Federal Endangered Species Act. The two-day workshop will consist of one day of presentations with butterfly experts, land managers and regulators, plus a half-day field trip. See attached flyer for additional details and a list of instructors!
