Missouri Butterflies & Pollinators: A Folding Pocket Guide to Familiar Species (Other)
One of the most captivating ways to experience nature in Missouri is through its butterflies. Dazzling species like Zebra Swallowtail and Monarch join more subtly colored ones like Southern Pearly-eye and Red-banded Hairstreak throughout the blooming season--and it's not just butterflies. The Show-Me State is packed with great places for observing hummingbirds, bees, moths, wasps, flies, and beetles. This diverse assortment of animals collectively plays essential ecological roles while supporting agricultural practices by humans. Learning about pollinators and the fascinating lives they lead is endlessly enriching. Given the remarkable diversity of species, it's handy to have quick access to a portable reference. This beautifully illustrated resource features over 100 common and familiar species, as well as a back-panel map showing top pollinator-viewing hotspots and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is the perfect companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and gardeners who wish to learn more about the pollinators they are most likely to encounter in Missouri.
