In 2004, Fred authored "An Introduction to Southern California Butterflies" with photographs by the late Herb Clarke. As in writing any book, Fred learned much about California butterflies and what makes them special. One of the things about California is that there are over 30 butterfly species which are endemic or near endemic to the state. No other state comes close. Please join Fred as he takes you on an illustrated tour to see these unique butterflies through the seasons of southern California with the wonderful photographs of Herb Clarke. Fred will also have on hand copies of his book to autograph and sell with $5 of the $20 purchase price going to support SEABA.
