Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Giant Wood Nymph ButterflyVolunteers with the Central Arizona Butterfly Association invite participants to join their 8th annual Autumn census of all the butterflies they can find at Boyce Thompson Arboretum on Saturday, Sept. 6; and a few others spots at the east edge of Pinal County. Similiar to the Christmas Bird County in December, the count circle has a 15-mile diameter centered in Superior, AZ, and the goal is a one-day census of all butterflies seen within; Arboretum daily admission of $10 is required for any non-members counting at BTA. Volunteer participants will be assigned to a team leader and will be working a part of the count circle area. To sign up as a volunteer, email Marceline VandeWater. Participants plan to meet for lunch at Jade Grill restaurant in Superior for an informal $10 buffet served family style (or bring your own) and to relax, chat and exchange preliminary findings of the tally.
