BUTTERFLY COUNT – Jerry Smith and Meadowmere Parks – Saturday, July 9 – 8:30 a.m. Join us as we count butterflies for the annual North American Butterfly Association butterfly count! We’ll walk Jerry Smith Park in the morning, have lunch at McAlister’s Deli in Grandview and the walk Meadowmere Park in the afternoon. A small fee of $3 per participant helps NABA with program costs.
These fun counts held throughout North America contribute to a growing knowledge of butterfly distributions, flight times, and abundance. No experience necessary – all are welcome to help spot butterflies and learn butterfly identification! We will be staying outside and keeping social distancing since cases are on the rise again. Bring along a mask in case there will be closer contact. Bring snacks, plenty of fluids to drink, bug spray, sunscreen, lunch money and $3; binoculars and camera optional. Wear long pants for tick protection. Stay for part or all day.
