Amazing Butterflies: Nature’s Gift to Us

How do butterflies know which plants to lay their eggs on? How do butterflies avoid predators? How is a butterfly’s vision different from that of a human?

James has been involved with native plant restoration efforts at the nature center since 2004, and conducts an annual butterfly count for the North American Butterfly Association and monthly counts for the Irvine Ranch Conservancy in Limestone Canyon.
