Silverspot: The Flight to Recovery

Join the Corvallis Public Library and the US Forest Service for a brief documentary about Oregon’s most charismatic threatened pollinator, the Oregon Silverspot Butterfly. After the documentary, there will be a question and answer with some of the scientists and researchers that are part of the work to recover this amazing species. This event will take place via GoTo Webinar. 

How do you find a caterpillar the size of a comma? How does habitat management impact survival? And once butterflies emerge, where do they go? From the use of “paw-mazing” detection dogs to tracking numbered wings, witness a groundbreaking summer on the Oregon Coast as scientists from the USDA Forest Service, US Fish & Wildlife Service, and University of Washington, Vancouver investigate important questions and make surprising discoveries for the recovery of the Oregon Silverspot Butterfly. Following the screening, there will be a talkback with scientists from the film where you can ask questions and learn more about this exciting work!

This event is appropriate for teens through adults. Virtual film via GoTo Webinar.
