Hi, I'm Peg. I am interested in all insects, including butterflies. I love using insects to help teach people about ecology and our environment. My "specialty" area in the insect world is dung beetles!
Austin, Texas, is home to about 170 species of butterflies. It is also the home of the Austin Butterfly Forum, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to butterfly conservation and to enriching people's lives through butterflies.
The Austin Butterfly Forum is a butterfly club that holds field trips, conducts butterfly counts, promotes butterfly gardening, performs conservation activities, and meets monthly for an educational presentation. We are a community of butterfly enthusiasts who also enjoy dragonflies & damselflies, bees, beetles, spiders and arthropods in general, and our meeting presentations span this gamut as well.
We have been holding monthly meetings since 1993 and have a regular crowd. People are NOT required to RSVP to the monthly meetings via meetup.com.
