Butterfly Counts 2017

april 2014-1871   
The NABA Butterfly Counts is an ongoing program of NABA to census the butterflies of North America (United States, Canada and partially Mexico) and to publish the results. Volunteer participants select a count area with a 15-mile radius and conduct a one-day census of all butterflies sighted within that circle. The Broward County Butterfly Chapter invites you to be part of citizen science efforts to document butterfly activity in Broward County. Do you love nature? Do you enjoy watching butterflies? If so, the upcoming events are for you! Please read below and see how you can help.
If you are interested in participating, choose your location from the list below and notify the contact person for that area. Join the count for a few hours or a day of fascinating butterfly counting.
What to Bring
Water, snacks, hat, sunscreen, binoculars, field guides and cameras. Dress for the outdoors and wear comfortable shoes.
NABA Participation Fee $3.00 cash for all participants
No experience necessary! Friends of all ages are welcome. High School students can earn service hours.
Garden watchers count butterflies in their own garden as long as it is within the count circle and pay $3.00 fee.
