The Monarch butterfly, one of the most iconic species in North America, plays a central role in efforts to protect pollinators.

Many in Southampton have witnessed the annual migration of monarch butterflies who land in Southampton on a day in September on their way from Canada to Mexico.

Now, The Thomas Halsey Homestead on South Main Street has been certified as a Monarch Butterfly Waystation by Monarch Watch. Speaker Angie Babbitt is communications coordinator for Monarch Watch and holds a masters degree in environmental studies from the University of Kansas. Her talk is co-sponsored by the Southampton History Museum and the Rogers Memorial Library.
