Come enjoy the excitement of being a Community Scientist by participating in a nation-wide census of North American butterflies! Teams of naturalists will be given territories to identify and count all butterflies seen in an effort to monitor population numbers. We'll begin at 10 a.m. with an introduction in the Audubon Center in Greenwich main building, where you will learn the basics of identifying butterflies and the different habitats you may find them in. At 10:30 a.m., we will venture out into the fields and meadows to observe and count the many species of butterflies that bring color to our nature sanctuary each summer.
The counting period will last from 10:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. People can join us for portions of the day or the whole day if they wish.
