Annual Butterfly Count honors late Los Alamos resident

-A A +A

Event > Experts will share knowledge on Aug. 5-8 in honor of Dorothy Hoard in several local spots

This year marks the 22nd Annual Butterfly Count in Los Alamos County, but this year the count carries a special meaning. This is the first such count since the passing of Living Treasure Dorothy Hoard, who initiated the Los Alamos County annual butterfly counts more than 20 years ago.
As such, the annual butterfly count will from now on be known as the “Dorothy Hoard Memorial Butterfly Count.” On Aug. 8, New Mexico butterfly guru Steve Cary will lead the count. In preparation for the count, butterfly enthusiast Roy Michelotti will present “Butterflies You Might See in Los Alamos, and Some Fun Facts About Butterflies” Aug. 5 at PEEC.
The count this year will be from 9 a.m. to about 3:30 p.m. Aug. 8. Cary will identify butterflies and discuss their habits and life histories with count participants. Butterflies in three different habitats will be counted — mesa top, streamside and high altitude. 
The count will be at Burnt Mesa in Bandelier on N.M. 4. The group will then move on to Cañon de Valle on N.M. 501 (West Jemez Road), expecting to arrive at about 10:30 a.m. At around noon, the group will go up to Camp May to have lunch and then continue counting until 3:30 p.m.
