Mary Mentz will be the guest speaker for our Audubon meeting on Thursday, May 10, at 10:00 in the Coronado Center Auditorium. Mary will talk about native plants and butterflies that use them. She will have some butterfly ID information also.
Mary Lynn Mentz received her BS in Biology at ATU and her MS in Zoology at EIU in Charleston, IL. She has been employed as a district wildlife biologist since 1997 with the US Forest Service. She has an office at both Rover and Jessieville, AR. She also holds a wildlife rehabilitation license with the AGFC.
She has an 18 year old son graduating in May from Danville High School that rode the Continental Divide from Mexico to Banff, Canada, by dirt like last year, a 14 year old daughter that collects horses she jumps and trains and a husband of 21 years that can’t build fence but his ability to put up with her collection of animals makes it worthwhile.
