sorry for this late response and for not being able to attend.
I think if I had gotten it into my calendar earlier it may have helped. I hope you consider sending the date for the VES newsletter next year.
Also another suggestion would be to have another walk later in the day which was something I was hoping to do.
Anyway I hope the count was a big success and hope to make one in the future.
Best regards,

Michael Sabourin

 North Branch 
 Nature Center 
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 
 Branch Nature 
 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
duplicate postings. 

Best, Chip
