Annual Butterfly Count

This year's Annual Butterfly Count for the Occoquan Bay area will be held Saturday, June 30, 2018. The survey is led by Jim Waggener who is looking for volunteers. Contact Jim Waggener for details. 

What better than a day tracking and identifying butterflies? This survey supports the North American Butterfly Association’s (NABA) Butterfly count.

Participants count all species and individuals within a 15 mile diameter circle centered on the mouth of Marumsco Creek in PrinceWilliamCounty.

The results are submitted to NABA’s national database for butterflies and are published in NABA’s annual report.
