A Tale of Two City Butterflies 
Thursday, September 14, 2017 07:00pm
Contact (650) 903-6337

Liam O’Brien, an invertebrate conservationist in the City of San Francisco, will focus on the two largest butterflies in his county - the Western Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio rutulus) and the legendary Monarch (Danaus plexippus). Liam is interested not only in these winged beauties but also in the zones where humans and Lepidoptera converge. It makes for a fascinating story and should spark a good conversation.

Liam O’Brien was a trained stage actor (who appeared in Les Misérables on Broadway), who now uses his “stage presence” and self-described “loud voice” to champion the cause of local Lepidoptera. His encyclopedic knowledge of butterflies and moths is entirely self-taught, his boundless enthusiasm for sharing that knowledge is thoroughly infectious and his ability to foster projects that bring together humans and butterflies is unique.
