Jay Cossey will be sharing fascinating stories and images of butterflies, moths and many other insects, and tell us about his recent book, Southern Ontario Butterflies and their Natural History.

Jay was born into a nature-loving family.  There were always caterpillars, chrysalises and cocoons in the house, so the miracle of metamorphosis was always on display in the Cossey household.

After 40 years as a graphic designer and studio photographer, Jay then helped create and then led the BIObus (University of Guelph) and crew to over 20 national parks in Canada, and numerous state parks from Florida to California for four years.  Since then he has worked as a freelance photographer.  Among Jay’s accomplishments, he contributed all 24 images for the first ever National Geographic Butterfly Calendar.

The OVN meets on the lower level at the Vienna Community Centre, 26 Fulton Street, Vienna.  Vienna is north of Port Burwell and south of Tillsonburg, but much closer to Port Burwell.  Admission is free and parking is free.
