PLWA Online Coffee Conversation Butterflies Around Pigeon Lake

Sunday, May 31st, 2020 at 9:30am - 10:30am

Location: Zoom Room

This event is in the past.

Join us for the Pigeon Lake Watershed Association Online Coffee Conversation with guest and local butterfly expert, Felix Sperling on Sunday May 31st #BYOCoffee

Pigeon Lake butterfly habitats vary from boggy fens with sphagnum moss to classic aspen parkland and agricultural land. Each of these has distinctive butterfly species, including some that are at the southernmost edge of their range. My surveys at Itaska over the past 25 years show that butterfly diversity is highly dynamic, with some species disappearing alongside vegetation changes while new invading species continue to appear.

Felix Sperling is at the University of Alberta, where he is a Professor in Biological Sciences and a Curator of the Strickland Museum of Entomology.
Registration is required as an online security measure:

These talks may shift to a local beach or park at the lake but for now, we are planning to open the zoom room for an informal conversation amongst neighbours every couple of weeks through the summer BYOCoffee.
