Butterfly Count

By jsteciak - Posted on 14 June 2017

Help monitor butterfly population trends in areas near 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 butterfly net is helpful but not required, as is a clipboard and tethered pen.

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 8th (see that day's post for details).
