Participate for the 16th season alongside volunteers from Mass Audubon and the Massachusetts Butterfly Club to count butterflies across multiple habitats at the 593-acre Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary, including neighboring Sylvan Nursery. This Buzzards Bay location is a hotspot for late-season emigrants and caterpillars. Who knows what will turn up this year? Bring lunch or snack. Please register with your phone number and e-mail as weather impacts the count. Rain dates Sundays Sept 6th and Sept 13.
Meet at the Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary field station parking lot, located at 1280 Horseneck Rd., Westport, MA at 10am to divide into census teams. Participants should wear long pants, sunscreen and bring water and a snack or lunch.
