Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Monarch Butterflies
Susie Vanderlip

Monarch butterfly citizen scientist Susie Vanderlip will give us expert advice on how to attract Monarch butterflies to our gardens and tips on raising a crop of energetic caterpillars that will emerge as gorgeous Monarch butterflies. Susie has raised hundreds of Monarchs in her garden in Orange and photographs, videotapes, tags, and tests Monarchs for parasites to support researchers at various universities. She has authored a children's photo storybook and a 10-minute video on the Monarch life cycle. Her book, The Story of Chester, the Monarch Caterpillar/Larva, has become a part of life science STEM curriculum for second graders in Orange County classrooms.
Susie has been speaking to groups for the past 25 years and has been inducted into the prestigious National Speakers Association Hall of Fame. She has presented at the Discovery Cube in Orange County, the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, and numerous garden clubs.
