Central Bluegrass Summer Butterfly Count

July 10 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Floracliff is hosting and organizing the 5th annual Central Bluegrass Summer Butterfly Count with NABA – Central Kentucky. Community scientists and butterfly enthusiasts are encouraged to help us count and document butterflies at various locations throughout the Lexington count circle. All data will be submitted to the North American Butterfly Association. This count is one of 400+ butterfly counts throughout North America. These counts provide important information about the geographical distribution and relative population sizes of the species counted. Comparisons of the results across years can be used to monitor changes in butterfly populations and study the effects of weather and habitat change on North American butterflies.

Pre-registration is required to participate in the Central Bluegrass Butterfly Count. To confirm participation, please complete this Google form by June 18th:

Confirmed participants will receive a follow-up email with details about their assigned site(s) as well as the count form to use on the day of the count.
