Butterflies are a good indicator of climate change, and UC Davis professor Arthur Shapiro has been studying them for decades (“The butterfly man” by Hugh Biggar; SN&R Feature Story; March 3, 2011). This Friday, the American River Natural History Association will host Shapiro in an event called “Art’s Butterfly World” as part of an ongoing lecture series. Shapiro will talk about his research studying 159 species and subspecies. It happens at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, February 17, at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center, 2850 San Lorenzo Way in Carmichael. Tickets cost $5. For more information, call (916) 489-4918 or visit www.sacnaturecenter.net.
