About the Event

Join us this winter for a four-part series to learn about NH butterflies! Spend time with other enthusiasts and gain skills to assist with citizen science efforts in 2023.

This is the second training in the series. George DeWolf will share details on the world of hairstreaks and blue butterflies.

During this training (and later through the series) you will find out about future field days offered in your area, including a July Butterfly Count that will occur at 6 locations across the state! This series will provide you with an eye-opening experience to connect with species you may not have noticed in the past – as soon as the world begins to green up this spring!

No matter what your skill level is, you’re welcome. Together we’ll work to keep track of the beautiful butterflies of New Hampshire.

Later trainings include:

  • March 22: Heidi Holman on the orange and black butterflies such as the fritillaries and checkerspots
  • April 5: Rick Van de Poll on some of the more challenging species including the browns and skippers
