  • June 29, 2022: Exploring and tracking Ann Arbor's butterfly population 

    Butterflies are important pollinators and are of great help in maintaining a healthy ecosystem. A variety of factors are contributing to a decline in some of their numbers. Marcy Breslow is co-author of a new book focused on 17 years of research and observation at Greenview Nature Area in Ann Arbor. She joined WEMU's David Fair to discuss the findings in the book, “The Butterflies of Our Local Park."

Tune in to 89.1FM WEMU to hear the shows on air, or listen to archived shows on our Issues of the Environment page.
