Event Description:

The North American Butterfly Association has run the Butterfly Count Program in the United States, Canada, and Mexico since 1993. The data collected provide a tremendous amount of information about the geographical distribution and relative population sizes of the species counted. Comparisons of the results across years can be used to monitor changes in butterfly populations and to study the effects of weather and habitat change on North American butterflies. Join us this evening to train and learn how you can participate in the National Butterfly Count on Wednesday July 4, 2018. Adults Only. Free!

Pre-registration is required for all events.
