Local Butterfly Counts

NABA sponsors almost 500 butterfly counts across the United States, Canada and northern Mexico each year. Volunteers count all butterfly species and individuals during a one-day period within a 15 mile diameter circle. The results are then published by NABA. These counts are critical in monitoring butterfly population trends, seasonality and ranges.

Several Fourth of July and Seasonal counts are conducted within a 50 mile radius of Chattanooga, Tennessee by Tennessee Valley NABA members and other interested people. NABA counts are a wonderful opportunity for "citizen science". Check the latest newsletter for information about where and when to meet for any of these.
