The Lady Slipper Speaker Series, presented by Conserving Carolina – formerly Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy and Pacolet Area Conservancy – welcomes Kim Bailey to Brevard College on Oct. 18. Her talk will take place at 6:30 p.m. in McLarty-Goodson Room 125. The presentation will explore the world of Monarch butterflies. Bailey will discuss Monarch natural history, migration and habitat needs.

In her more than 20-year education career, Bailey has enjoyed many experiences, including teaching middle school life science, leading wilderness adventure trips and directing outdoor environmental education programs.

Bailey first visited the Monarch overwintering sanctuaries in Mexico in 2002 and has since co-led several trips to the area. She recently launched Milkweed Meadows Farm in Fruitland, N.C., and now grows milkweed, wildflowers, fruits and vegetables; produces open-pollinated seeds for Sow True Seed; keeps bees and raises butterflies.

Bailey currently serves on the board of directors for the Henderson County Beekeepers Association and Bee City USA.

The Lady Slipper Speaker Series will feature three lectures in the fall, taking place the third Wednesday of each month. The series is held from 6:30-8 p.m. in McLarty-Goodson, Room 125, at Brevard College.
