Join the Massachusetts Butterfly Club to participate in a North American Butterfly Association (NABA) count at the Frances A. Crane Wildlife Management Area in Falmouth! NABA counts are field trips that have the additional purpose of gathering data that will help monitor butterfly populations over many years. Often counts take longer than other field trips, and some of them include a get-together at the end of the day to discuss findings and share a meal.

Please call ahead to confirm date, get directions to meeting place and rain date plans, and to let the coordinator know to expect you. Wear comfortable clothing and sturdy walking shoes. Bring binoculars, hand lens, field guide(s), sunscreen, water, hat, insect repellant, allergy medicines, snacks and/or lunch, pen/pencil & small pad for recording, and camera. Netting is not allowed. Rain date for this count is Monday, July 16.

Cost: Free
