The next FBMN Butterfly Biodiversity Survey is on Saturday, June 7, 2014, at 9:00 AM, meet at the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge Visitors' Center. Anyone interested is welcome, refreshments will be served.
Participants will view a presentation on identifying 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. Bringing insect/sun protection, drinking water and wearing closed hiking boots or shoes and long pants is recommended.
