Monthly Meeting: Butterflies and Butterfly Farms of Costa Rica

WBA member Kenneth Valverde grew up in Costa Rica and moved here two years ago.  He worked as a naturalist guide and also worked in a wildlife refuge as a butterfly keeper.  As part of the natural conservation efforts of the resort where he was working, he met wiith neighboring communities teaching them how to reproduce butterflies and sell to local butterfly exhibits. He will share his excellent photos of many of the butterflies of Costa Rica and also of the butterfly farms. Kenneth is also a volunteer at the Woodland Park Zoo in the Bug World.
