David O'Donnell

Monarch butterflies have started an environmental movement across the country. No other species has ignited such a passion to promote its conservation and sustainability as the majestic Monarch. Learn more about the magnificent Monarch butterfly with presenter David O’Donnell, founder of the Eastern Monarch Butterfly Farm located in Clarence, New York. David believes this butterfly is a messenger sending us an important message- “We need to start taking better care of the environment or not only will we lose the things we love, like the Monarch butterfly, we will soon lose more of what we need to survive as a human species.”  David has made it his mission to promote not only Monarch habitat restoration, but all ecologically friendly practices which promote a cleaner and more sustainable environment for us all. David will have some beneficial butterfly seeds and plants available for sale at the program so we can immediately start to make a positive difference for nature by placing plants in our yards. 

After the program and weather permitting, join on a short trip to Pfeiffer property as we celebrate the opening of our Butterfly Garden Project with the sowing of our first milkweed plants.  This program will be held at The Portville Free Library, 2 North Main Street, Portville, New York 14770.  Fee: $5 for members, $10 for non-members and free for children 13 and under.   Minors must be accompanied by an adult.  Register by 4 PM, Thursday, April 2nd. Sign up on the programs Calendar on our website at or contact the office at 716-933-0187.  Pfeiffer Nature Center is supported by United Way funding.  Pfeiffer Nature Center where science, art & nature come together.
