Mar 10: Life Cycle of the Monarch Butterfly with Janet Biondi

Sunday, March 10, 2024 10:00 AM

Join Nauset Fellowship in-person at Chapel in the Pines in Eastham on March 10 for a talk by Janet Biondi of Eastham regarding her experience raising monarch butterflies from egg to release.

Janet will discuss the stages of the monarch butterfly from the egg, to the larvae (caterpillar), the pupa (chrysalis), and the adult butterfly.  The process is nothing short of miraculous, and raising monarchs allows for a close up view of this wonder of nature.

A childhood passion for nature and drawing animals led to a career of painting marine mammals, working with renown whale scientists on illustration and data collecting expeditions in the field.  She has illustrated many children’s books as well as whale and sea shell guides for the Cape Cod National Seashore. All are welcome.

Janet Biondi is a wildlife and landscape artist and a naturalist at heart.  Working in many mediums over the course of several decades, she now paints the Cape Cod landscape in oil. Biondi illustrated the children’s book D is for Dolphin, Seashells of the National Seashore and the National Seashore Whale Guide in the 1980’s. Her work can be found at
