Chapters: New Jersey Monthly Meeting – National Butterfly Center Update

The New Jersey chapter of NABA meets Tuesday, October 3, @ 7:30pmĀ at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum’s Haggerty Education Center, 353 East Hanover Avenue, Morristown, NJ.

This meeting will feature a presentation by NABA President Jeff Glassberg on Trumps’ Border Wall: Its effect on the National Butterfly Center and the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

The Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas has the most diverse butterfly and bird fauna of any area of the United States. This biological diversity is jeopardized by the construction of a border wall. In addition, a wall will obliterate the 450 million dollars that ecotourism pours into the economy of what is the most economically disadvantaged area in the United States. For people especially interested in butterflies, conservation and education, a wall poses an existential threat to the National Butterfly Center, which is owned and operated by NABA
