Murphee Gives Lecture at Cheekwood

Biology Professor Steve Murphree gave a lecture at Cheekwood Botanical Garden on Sept. 29 and Oct. 3.  The lecture was titled “Migration of the Monarchs – Mariposa Monarchas” and was part of a professional development workshop for teachers at Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art’s Learning Center. Each year, monarch butterflies travel 2,000 miles from the Northeastern United States and Canada to a butterfly sanctuary in Mexico. Cheekwood and Vanderbilt’s Center for Latin American Studies have partnered to offer a workshop that focuses on the art, history, geography, culture and biology that is part of this incredible journey. The workshop was titled The Incredible Journey: Exploring the Art, Migration and Traditions of the Monarch Butterfly.
