2018 Johnstone Lecture: Familiar Creatures Communicate Big Messages in North American Schools

Estela Romero has coordinated the Symbolic Migration program in her hometown of Angangueo, Michoacán for fifteen years. This program mimics the migration of monarchs, carrying thousands of paper butterflies from Canadian and USA students to Mexico to overwinter at schools near the real monarchs and then returning the paper butteflies. Estela not only brings these "ambassador butterflies" to the children but environmental and cultural lessons. Like Estela, the State Botanical Garden of Georgia collaborates with many to teach environmental science to children through endearing, familiar creatures. After Estela's talk, SBG Director of Education Cora Keber will give a short summary of similar programs and collaborations at the garden.

 

7 p.m. reception, 7:30 p.m. talk. The event is free, but reservations are required by September 11 at www.botgarden.uga.edu. The Johnstone Lecture, sponsored by FRIENDS of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, was named in honor of the State Botanical Garden's first director, Dr. Francis E. Johnstone, Jr.
