21st Annual Butterfly Count

Meeting Place: Wonder House
8:00 am - 2:00 pm
Admission: Free
Right about peak butterfly season, Queen Wilhelmina State Park holds a butterfly count. If you would like to participate in the annual butterfly count, here is your chance. Each summer, people of all ages and walks of life join the count to create an annual snapshot of the distribution and abundance of butterflies. The results of the count are published in “Butterfly World” which is a journal enjoyed by butterfly lovers around the globe. All ages and levels of expertise are welcome. We will spend 6 hours hiking and counting butterflies. Your participation can make a difference. Butterfly enthusiast Bruce Ewing will also set up his display of caterpillars at the Wonder House. Feel free to bring a sack lunch, water, sturdy hiking shoes and long pants.
