Join us for our next FBMN Butterfly Biodiversity Survey on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at 9 AM, meet at the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. Anyone interested is welcome, refreshments will be served. Participants will view a presentation on butterflies and then assist refuge staff and volunteers to survey butterflies in a variety of habitats. The data is collected for the Florida Butterfly Monitoring Network Project of the University of Florida. No butterfly identification experience is necessary, you will be part of a team made up of an experienced butterfly identifier, a recorder and some number of observers who will walk a fixed path noting and recording all butterflies seen and the plants they are utilizing. Bring insect/sun protection, drinking water and wear closed hiking boots or shoes, long pants is recommended.
