Join Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo virtually once a month from April through October, 2021 to learn about wildlife conservation on a local, national, and even global level. AARP CT is proud to sponsor this content development and the conservation efforts of the Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo.
This month's feature: "Monarch Migration Magic"
One of the world's most astounding wildlife events occurs each year in Mexico's Central Highlands, featuring the most delicate of creatures. As we enter a grove of fir trees on a remote mountaintop, the trunks and branches appear to be blanketed with rusty autumn leaves. A closer look reveals they’re quivering. Then, as the sun emerges from behind a cloud to warm them, hundreds of thousands of monarch butterflies take to the sky—so many that we actually hear the beating of their wings, which glow translucent orange against the blue sky. Experience this moving phenomenon as Court Whelan takes us on a virtual tour of monarch magic.
You may join us each month, but registration for each event is required separately. Full list of event dates: 4/28, 5/19, 6/16, 7/21, 8/18, 9/22, and 10/20.
