About the Event

From the Clifton Institute:

Every year community scientists help count the butterflies in 15-mile-diameter circles all around the country and contribute their data to the North American Butterfly Association. This summer we will host our 29th annual butterfly count and celebrate our 22nd year contributing our data to NABA. Butterfly enthusiasts of all levels of experience are welcome! If you feel like you don’t know many butterflies, this is a great way to learn and it’s always helpful to have more eyes pointing out butterflies. Participants will be assigned to small teams, led by an experienced butterfly counter. We will share information about your team closer to the date. Each team will survey a variety of sites within our count circle.  Unless your leader says otherwise, participants will meet at the Clifton Institute at 9:00 AM. We will meet back here at 3:00 PM to tally our results over cold drinks (provided).

Cost: Free!

Age:  Adults and children accompanied by an adult.

Bring: Please bring a lunch and water. We recommend wearing long pants and a broad-brimmed hat and bringing binoculars.

Registration is REQUIRED. https://cliftoninstitute.org/event/2024-naba-butterfly-count/
