L. M. can give age appropriate talks to your homeschool group, youth or adult organization.


L. M. began giving talks at Duke Gardens in 2014.  They have presented to homeschool groups, master gardeners, and youth organizations.


An ideal duration for any butterfly topic is about 90 minutes. This allows for about an hour of lecture and 30 minutes for answering questions and interacting with live caterpillars or butterflies.


L. M. has a variety of butterfly topics she can talk about. Content of a talk can be customized based upon audience interests.
