In a previous post, I talked about the fun and importance of the annual North American Butterfly Association annual butterfly count. If you haven't had the opportunity yet to participate in one of these counts, there is another one coming up on July 16th.
NABA Count – "Prince George's County Butterfly Count"

This butterfly count has been held annually since 1992. All participants must be physically prepared to handle the summer heat/humidity and hiking. Participants are responsible for bringing their own water, hats, field guides, cameras, etc. This program is better suited to teens and adults. Previous butterfly count experience is preferred, but not necessarily required.
