Free ESBA Presentation on February 21, 2018 - by Dana Bolin on

, ‘Monarch Butterflies – Enchanting and Endangered’  at 7:00 PM at MCCC

Please mark your calendars and join Erie Shores Birding Association for a fascinating presentation by naturalist Dana Bolin. A lifelong resident of Northwest Ohio, Dana has been chasing wildlife and exploring natural areas her entire life. After receiving a master’s in biology at Bowling Green State University, she spent 25 years working as a naturalist and resource specialist for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources; first with wildlife at Magee Marsh, then with Parks for many years at the Maumee Bay Nature Center, and then with Natural Areas and Preserves.

Admittedly smitten by things with wings, Dana has raised and released more than 10,000 Monarch butterflies! After presenting an overview of Monarch life history and migration, she will share images from her 2006 visit to several overwintering sites in Mexico. In addition, Dana will discuss ongoing destruction of butterfly habitat and other pollinators, as well as illuminate easy ways the average homeowner can help to save this iconic insect, possibly saving the world along the way.

We meet in the Monroe County Community College, 1555 S. Raisinville Road, Life Science Building (large ‘L’ on exterior of building), room 201.  For ease of access, there is an elevator as well as a second entrance to the classroom which contains no stairs. 


A brief membership meeting discussion precedes the presentation and our meetings are always FREE! Light refreshments are served. Please bring a friend, neighbor, fellow birder or family member to this wonderful presentation! If you'd like to join our club, individual memberships are $20/year and family memberships are $25/year to support the wildlife conservation efforts we participate in!
