NABA Butterfly Count


Event Details


A regal fritillary butterfly nectars on milkweed during one of the previous butterfly counts.

From tiny hairstreaks to large swallowtails, all sizes of butterflies will be counted during the Cheyenne Bottoms annual butterfly quest.

All that’s required for the count, is a pair of binoculars and keen eyes. KWEC will supply field guides, transportation and binoculars. Participants will search fields and gardens in and around Cheyenne Bottoms by vehicle and foot, during this official North American Butterfly Association count. Most surveying will be within short walking distances but there will be some uneven ground. This event is not suitable for children under the age of 12.
The NABA Count is in its 44th year and gathers information to track population trends. Organized like the Christmas Bird Count, much of the count is done from a vehicle, with maps and data sheets provided. Please preregister by July 25 by calling KWEC at 1-877-243-9268 to reserve a spot or for more information.
