The North American Butterfly Association conducts approximately 450 butterfly counts throughout North America, and this year North Conway will be added to the list! Similar to the Christmas Bird Count, we will census butterflies within a 15-mile diameter count circle. If counting and recording butterflies sounds overwhelming, don’t be deterred! There are roles for all interested volunteers, even if you aren’t confident with your ID skills. Interested in participating? Contact Katy Lewis.

The count will be held on either July 22 or 23, depending on weather. A decision will be made the week prior.
