2018 Johnstone Lecture

"Familiar Creatures Communicate Big Messages in North American Schools."

Estela Romero has coordinated the symbolic migration program in her hometown of Angangueo, Michoacan, for 15 years. This program mimics the migration of monarchs, carrying thousands of paper butterflies from Canadian and U.S. students to Mexico to overwinter at schools near the real monarchs and then returning the paper butterflies.

Also, State Botanical Garden Director of Education Cora Keber will give a short summary of similar programs and collaborations at the garden.

Reservations are required by Sept. 11 at www.botgarden.uga.edu.

The Johnstone Lecture, sponsored by FRIENDS of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, was named in honor of the State Botanical Garden’s first director, Francis E. Johnstone Jr.
