Bicycling with Butterflies – VIRTUAL

May 6 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


In 2017 Sara Dykman became the first person to bicycle the entire route of the migrating monarch butterfly. Sara’s journey took her from Mexico to Canada and back, accompanied only by her old mountain bike weighed down with all the supplies she would need for nine months on the road and the fleets of monarchs flying above. Along this 10,201 mile route, Dykman gave presentations to people about the monarchs and what listeners can do to protect the migration. Sara became a voice for the monarchs. Now her voice has the potential to travel even further, with the launch of her book “Bicycling with Butterflies”. Part science, part adventure and part love letter to nature, Dykman hopes her book will inspire people to see the beauty of our own backyards and the power each of us has to be part of the solution.

In this speaker event, you’ll learn even more about Sara’s journey and what you can do to protect the migration.

Space is limited and registration is required. This event will be held virtually via Zoom.

Participants will receive an email with the link for the Zoom meeting prior to the event. Make sure you have Zoom installed and set up to participate.
