September 6, 2015

The Friends of the Library begin their 2015 Fall Program Series at the Library on Thursday, September 10th at 7:00 pm with "Saving the Monarch Butterfly." Dr. Michael Hamm will speak about international efforts to save the Monarch Butterfly. Hamm will discuss the Monarch’s unique migration which can require flights of up to 3,000 miles, and the efforts to rescue the Monarch from its alarming decline.

Hamm serves on the Board of Trustees of the Kentucky Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, and the Boards of Directors of the Central Kentucky Wildlife Refuge and the La Cruz Habitat Protection Project, which sponsors and oversees the reforestation of the Monarch winter roosting sites in Mexico.
