Third Annual Butterfly Count at Boyce Thompson Arboretum. Leader: Chris Kline


Saturday, September 12, 2009
8:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Join us at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum on Saturday September 12 as we tackle our 3rd Annual Butterfly Count. Counting starts at 8:30AM sharp, so try to arrive a little early. 77 species of butterflies appear on the Arboretum's checklist, while the record for most species observed in a single day is 38 by John Saba in October, 2005. Xami Hairstreak is one of specialties that can be found at the BTA. Chris Kline, a long time butterfly enthusiast and Monarch researcher, will fly in from Ohio this Fall to lead the annual butterfly count and also spend time tagging Monarchs for the SW Monarch Study. The Arboretum is located on US 60, about 20 miles east of Apache Junction. Hope you can join us!
