2019 North American Butterfly Count

July 06, 2019 - Greenwich, CT

Become a Community Scientist by participating in this nation-wide census of North American butterflies! Teams of naturalists will be given territories to identify and count all butterflies seen in order 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.
