Tiger Longwing, Blue Morpho, Green Triangle Kite, Thoas Swallowtail, Red Peacock, Rice Paper, Blue Wave -- if
names like this are foreign to you, you need to know about the bevy of beauties one can find at Houston's
Cockrell Butterfly Center. The Center is part of the Houston Museum ofNatural Science. In addition to
showcasing hundreds of exotic insects and plants, the Center offers a three-story-tall tropical rain forest where freeflying
butterflies might land on your shoulder. For amateur naturalists and photographers, the Cockrell Butterfly Center
offers great fun. For environmentally conscious Texans, Nancy Greig, director of the Cockrell Butterfly Center, offers an
entomologist's insight into the glorious and perilous life of these colorful creatures. Join us Thursday, March 12, to learn about
these delicate beauties and the conservation required to save them for future generations.
Note: Because of Lent, our March meeting room has been moved from Pecore Hall behind the church where we usually have it:
(Social period begins at 7:00 PM. Main program begins at 7:30 PM.)
Havens Center (of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church)
1827 W. Alabama, Houston, TX 77098
It is just west of the church at Woodhead, and we can still park in either of the parking lots behind the church (the lot between Havens and the church fills up quite quickly), or on the streets like Sul Ross and Driscoll.
