Location: Recreation Room, Francisco County Fair Building

In his talk, Lech Naumovich will take us up to the summit of Twin Peaks where a postage stamp habitat retains one of the last populations of the Mission Blue butterfly. We will travel back through time, eventually ending up at the present day situation and talk about the dynamic interplay of butterfly research, implementation of the research recommendations and the dynamic and critical role of humans.

He has 15 years of experience with restoration and stewardship of California wildlands. Lech is on the CNPS State Conservation Committee and formerly worked for 5 years as the conservation analyst for the East Bay Chapter of CNPS. He has recently co-authored the 2nd Edition of a Checklist of the Flora of the East Bay as well as a Guidebook to Botanical Priority Protection Areas of the East Bay. Lech is also an avid photographer of conservation in action.
