American Lady by Laurie Sheppard

Have you ever wondered where butterflies go when the weather gets cold? How do they survive our cold winds and occasional frosty winter weather? Come learn about some of our most colorful residents and the strategies they use to survive. Laurie will talk about various research projects utilizing citizen scientists and how you can get involved.

Laurie Sheppard is a certified Texas Master Naturalist with a primary interest in butterflies. She is a long-time volunteer at Hagerman, serving as a Butterfly Garden Docent, a Tram Driver, a Nature Nook staffer, a writer/editor for the Featherless Flyer, and a member of the Friends of Hagerman Board of Directors. She is an avid photographer and regularly shares her butterfly photos. Since 2016, she has lived in the Sherman area. She maintains the list of butterflies seen at the refuge and regularly scours the fields and back roads looking for butterfly species not previously documented in Grayson County.
