RSVP with Dr. Paul Castrovillo, (208) 332-8627 or paul.castrovillo at agri.idaho.gov

Help monitor butterfly population trends in areas outside of Boise, including Military Reserve and Bogus Basin. Participants should be prepared for a day of hiking: daypack, sunscreen, lunch, snacks, water, sunhat, and sturdy footwear.

A registration fee of $4 per person will be collected; the fee helps the North American Butterfly Association compile the results of this nationwide survey.

Volunteers meet in the morning at the 17th and State Street parking lot (there is a liquor store) for free cinnamon rolls and orange juice, and to organize carpools.

A free butterfly identification workshop will be held on Saturday, July 9th (see that day's post for details).
