Assist a butterfly census at Holtwood

Would you like to volunteer to help survey butterflies? The annual July Butterfly Count, sponsored by the North American Butterfly Association, will be held at PPL’s Holtwood Environmental Preserve starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, July 11.

Led by the Southern Lancaster County Chapter of the North American Butterfly Association, the butterfly count offers a wonderful opportunity to get involved, learn about these beautiful creatures and assist in gathering valuable information about the range and population numbers of butterfly species. Plan to spend part of or all day outdoors. Bring binoculars and a field guide as well as water. 

There is a $3 fee to support the NABA. This program will begin at the Holtwood Environmental Center, 9 New Village Road, Holtwood, PA 17532. For more information or directions, contact Karen Ament at 717-284-6274 or kament@pplweb.com.
