How to Identify Fritillary & Checkerspot Butterflies

NH Butterfly Monitoring Network



High Adventure




About the Event

Join Amy Highstrom, Coordinator of the Lake Sunapee Butterfly Count, for a training on identifying orange and black butterflies, such as the fritillaries and checkerspots, found in New Hampshire. Participants will also hear about opportunities to learn more and future field days being offered throughout the state, including July Butterfly Counts where volunteers can help survey for butterflies and collect data. All butterfly enthusiasts are welcome, with or without prior experience!

This training is part of a series of six webinars hosted by the NH Butterfly Monitoring Network, a collaborative effort led by NH Fish & Game Department to engage volunteers in counting and identifying butterflies across New Hampshire. The series will provide information on butterflies in New Hampshire, butterfly biology and identification, and how to get involved with the NH Butterfly Monitoring Network. For more information and to register for the session(s) you want to attend (you don’t need to attend them all!), visit naturegroupie.org.
