The sight of butterflies fluttering around on a warm day is one of the most iconic signs of summer.  These beautiful insects usually only live for a few weeks as adults, but they make quite an impression while they are in their full glory.  There is a large variety of butterfly species in our area and we are going to census them on June 29 during the 19th Annual North American Butterfly Association Count sponsored by ASNV. The NABA count takes place in and around our Occoquan Bay Count Circle.  In preparation, Dr. Leslie Ries will be teaching a butterfly workshop focusing on identifying butterflies in Northern Virginia.

The classroom portion of the workshop is FREE, but registration is required.
