Naturalist Field Day
Find beauty in the science of butterflies with naturalist Brian Williams.
We will begin with an introduction to butterfly families and Montana’s most common species. Use visible traits to identify a butterfly to family and refine to species in your guide book. The majority of the day will be spent in the field catching butterflies with nets. We may spend the end of the day practicing pinning of specimens for educational purposes. This class is a great way to hone your skills for the July butterfly count or just more fully enjoy Montana’s species.
What to Bring: Lunch, water, snacks, hiking shoes, and clothes appropriate for the weather.
