Forests for Monarchs, a non-profit reforestation project that has planted
six million trees over the past 14 years.  

She intertwines fascinating science, myth, culture, art, poetry, legend, and
literature, combined with environmental issues, to share her passion and
concern for butterflies and their habitats.   She is also known as Butterfly

She has lectured extensively, including at Harvard Museum of Natural
History, Yale Peabody Museum, National Museum of Natural History, and the
Florida Federation of Gardeners.
