The North Branch
is trying to resurrect its annual NABA butterfly count which is coming up this
Saturday, July 10. We when first started doing the count, we had a good number
of participants – but numbers have dwindled in the last few years. It
would be great to breathe some new life into this count!
We’ve seen some
good butterflies on the count – Bog Copper, Baltimore Checkerspot, Coral
Hairstreak, Silver-bordered Fritillary, Brown Elfin, Harris’ Checkerspot,
Two-spotted Skipper – especially if you like to get your feet wet.
We’ll be meeting
here at the North
Center between 8:30 and
9:00 a.m. There will be a family friendly butterfly walk at the nature center
between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. Send me and email or give me a call at
802-229-6206, if you’d like to participate.
My apologies for any
