Our first event to count butterflies was well attended and included an educational powerpoint on how to identify common butterflies in this area. After the count, many stayed to watch the second powerpoint on how to create a butterfly garden with native plants. What a great morning and everyone had fun! Actual count was done 9:45 to 10:45a.m.
