Monarch Metamorphosis and Migration with Pam Courtney
Who of us has not marveled at the beauty and artistry of the monarch butterfly? But monarchs are exceptional in another way: they are the only known butterflies that migrate. Known as The Methuselah Generation, these late season monarchs travel up to 3,000 miles to reach their overwintering sites in Mexico. When spring arrives, they begin their return trip back north. How do they do that? Their navigational system remains a mystery to man but is clearly known to God, their creator.
Pam Courtney began sharing her citizen science enthusiasm for monarch butterflies, after one of her tagged monarchs was recovered in Mexico. For over twenty years now, she has been teaching adults and children how to raise monarchs, from caterpillar to adult, and how to participate in tag and release migration tracking programs. Pam’s classes discuss intelligent design and metamorphosis: science that debunks evolution. She is currently writing a book on the life cycle of the monarch butterfly and plans to visit the El Rosario Sanctuary in Mexico this season.
Please join us to hear about these intriguing insects as Pam Courtney, founder of Monarch Adventure Teaching Ministry, takes us into the world of the monarch, discusses metamorphosis evidence that points to the Creator, The Methuselah Generation, and The Amazing Gospel Analogy in the Life Cycle of the Monarch Butterfly. She will also give butterfly gardening tips to help us attract these lovely creatures to our own backyards.
Sponsored by the Creation Science Society of Milwaukee, this event is free and open to the public. Creation literature and DVD’S will be available.
