Join us for the first annual NABA butterfly count for southwest Harrison County on May 21, 2022!

The designated sample area will fall within a sample circle with a 7.5 mile radius from the center, which will be located at the intersection of I-10 and Menge Avenue.

This will be a learning experience for all of us, so don't feel like you aren't qualified to participate!

There are a couple ways to participate. You can travel to the field sites and do the butterfly counts, or you can be a garden sitter where you sit at a pollinator garden and do counts throughout the day in that garden.

Scientists, citizen scientists, nature photographers, birders, and naturalists of all ages are welcome!

There is a $3 fee to participate.

If interested in participating, plese contact Jennifer Buchanan at the email address or phone number listed above to register.
