Help count butterflies at Montour

Would you like to volunteer to help survey butterflies on and around Montour Environmental Preserve? The annual July Butterfly Count, sponsored by the North American Butterfly Association, will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, July 12, at the preserve.

Led by the association’s Central Susquehanna Valley Chapter, 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 if you have them, as well as water and a lunch.

This free program will meet at the Environmental Education Center. For information or directions, contact the preserve at 570-437-3131 or jdbeam@pplweb.com.
