North American Butterfly Association (NABA) Butterfly Count

Join us for an all-day event focusing on our fluttering friends. Why count butterflies? It helps scientists

piece together the big picture of the distribution and population size of each species counted, including

changes over time. And it’s fun! You’ll learn to identify the different types of butterflies and the native

plants they utilize at the Preserve. Please bring binoculars, or a camera with a zoom lens, and a field

guide, if available. Make sure you have plenty of water, snacks, and appropriate sun protection. Join us

for all or part of the day; all experience levels are welcome, from beginners to experienced butterfliers.

Please meet the group at the Visitor Center.

This program will take place at Bowman’s Hill

Wildflower Preserve. The fee is $3 per participant; all proceeds will be donated to the North American

Butterfly Association. Pre-registration is suggested.

Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve is located at 1635 River Rd. (Rt. 32), just two and half miles south of

downtown New Hope, PA. For more information about programs at the Preserve visit www.bhwp.org.
