Week One: Monarch Moments

"Monarch Populations Beyond Eastern North America"  
Speakers/Guides: Adam Gollwitzer and students

Location: Smith Wilkes Hall

“Have you ever wondered if there are monarch butterflies in other parts of the world?  If so, how did they get there and are they just like those of North America? Prepared and presented by a team of students from Chautauqua Lake Central School who have participated in an in-depth study of monarch natural history, ecology, and behavior, this talk will give us the facts about monarchs that call other parts of the world home.

Adam Gollwitzer earned his BA in Geological Sciences and his MSEd in Science Education from SUNY at Buffalo (UB).  He has taught science for eleven years in urban and rural settings to students with a variety of learning needs. Mr. Gollwitzer is currently instructing at Chautauqua Lake Central School (CLSC) District. Mr. Gollwitzer is an active member of the National Science Teachers Association, New York State Outdoor Science Education Association, and the Council for Exceptional Children. BTG believes strongly in partnering with the local community and actively engaging young people in the pursuit of careers in science. We are proud to offer CLSC this lecture platform.
