January-March 2019 Programs

General Meetings

The January 22nd program. Experiencing the Monarch Migration. GGC members Karen Rice & Pam Braak will talk about their firsthand experience (along with Greg Braak and Chuck Voelker) of one of the most amazing phenomena in nature – the migration of millions of Monarch butterflies southward from their breeding grounds in the United States and Canada to overwintering sites in the mountains of south central Mexico.  Follow our intrepid human travelers from DFW up the mountains of Michoacán Mexico, and follow the path of the migrating monarchs over thousands of miles across unforgiving environments.

The February 26th program. Favorite Plants for North Texas Monarchs. What do Monarch butterflies need as they travel through north Texas? Well, it depends on whether they are on their way south to the mountains of southern Mexico or whether they are on their way north to procreate. Carol Clark, Conservation Specialist with Monarch Watch and longtime member of the Native Plant Society of Texas, will introduce us to the plants Monarch butterflies look for and use most as they travel through Texas. She’ll also provide free copies of a Monarch plant list developed specifically for the DFW area, so we can all get started transforming our own landscapes into Monarch oases.

The March 26th program. Beekeeping. Our speaker, Chris Coy, started beekeeping in 2012 to add pollinators into his backyard for improved yields on fruit trees, grapevines, and vegetables on his property. Not only did the honey bees help improve production, but beekeeping opened a fascinating world of how honey bees work, organize their colonies, and affect a third of our food through pollination. With eight hives now in his backyard, he has abundant fruit, vegetables, and honey, and is passionate about educating others about these insects who are a vital part of our food chain.
