Dear VBS folks:
If the arctic air mass has got you down, here's your chance to warm up
with butterflies and the Vermonters who love them. The Vermont Butterfly
Survey will honor its volunteers at a
POTLUCK BUTTERFLY BRUNCH at 11 am. on
Sunday, February 20, at the North Branch Nature Center in
Montpelier. If you attend, you'll:
- View wall-sized images of Vermont butterflies
- Eat great food.
- Share wild stories from your VBS survey expeditions.
- Get tips from the experts on butterfly identification and VBS
VBS will provide bagels and beverages. So bring a dish to share, your
butterfly stories, questions, and warm enthusiasm for the coming season
of gossamer wings.
We also want your best butterfly images to display during the Wing Ding.
Pick your best three (no more) electronic images (JPGs, please) and email
them to Kent at [log in to unmask] We'll incorporate your shots into
the slide show.
There's no need to RSVP. Just show up. And feel free to bring along your
digital camera, GPS unit or other VBS tools you might need help
