FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Jeff Mott, Director
Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserve
Butte Creek Ecological Preserve
The NABA Butterfly Counts is an ongoing program to census the butterflies of North America (United States, Canada and partially Mexico) and to publish the results. Volunteer participants select a count area with a 15-mile diameter and conduct a one-day census of all butterflies sighted within that circle. You can find more details on NABA at http://www.naba.org/counts.html.
If you wish to participate in this annual census, please contact Jeff Mott at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. Volunteers will meet at the barn of the reserve at 8:30 am. Participants should bring a lunch, plenty of drinking water, hat, sunscreen and hiking boots.
You don’t need to be a butterfly expert to join the census but you will need to be prepared for a day of hiking and learning about these amazing insects.
