Annual Butterfly Count: Let’s Count Butterflies!
August 6 @ 9:00 am
Come and have fun while contributing to butterfly conservation during Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy’s 26th annual Butterfly Count. Each year the North American Butterfly Association (NABA) asks volunteers around the nation to count all the butterflies they see within specified count circles. Our circle stretches from Leesburg to the Blue Ridge and from Lovettsville to Lincoln, along roadsides and driveways, public pollinator plantings, and private gardens. All ages and experience levels are welcome — you’ll be teamed up with experienced leaders. There is a $3 fee per adult; Loudoun Wildlife members and children under 18 participate for free. Fees and count data are submitted to NABA, whose database is made available to researchers. Registration required.
Learn more about the count (including the map of the count circle) and register here. Registration for 2022 count is now closed.
