Elke Jahns-Harms



Elke Jahns-Harms returns to share her fabulous photos and stories of monarchs. Elke and her husband Garth have gotten to know these magical creatures well while raising and releasing over a hundred butterflies. What makes these butterflies so special? How can we help them? In this zoom webinar, Elke will discuss facts and myths about monarchs and share stories and photos from their experiences.

Elke Jahns-Harms teaches Music and Social Change at the New England Conservatory and International Development Aid at The Fletcher School. She and her husband began raising monarch butterflies a few years ago and have coached friends and neighbors to raise them as well.  They continue to be moved and amazed at how people react to these exquisite creatures. Elke holds a PhD in International Relations, a Master’s in Music, a Master of Public Affairs, and a B.A. in Geology and Environmental Science.
