Join New Mexico’s unofficial “Butterfly Guy” Steve Cary at Pajarito Environmental Education Center, 7 p.m. on Aug. 15.
Cary’s talk will be before the 21st annual Los Alamos Butterfly Count on Aug. 17. Participants for the count should meet 8:30 a.m. at PEEC, or 9 a.m. at the Burnt Mesa Trailhead. Both events are free and all ages are welcome.
During the talk, Cary will show many of his own photographs, which will help attendees learn how to identify butterflies they are likely to see in this year’s butterfly count. He will also explain the effect the recent wildfires have had on our local species, and he will summarize the monitoring of monarch butterflies and offer opportunities for Los Alamoseños to participate.
On Saturday, join Cary and PEEC Butterfly interest group member Dorothy Hoard, to observe our local species of butterflies in their natural habitats. At the same time, participants will be contributing to science, as the data collected during the count is used to track the butterflies. In the past, data has been shared with the North American and New Mexico Butterfly Associations. No experience is necessary to take part in the butterfly count, and this will be a family friendly activity.
Three different habitats will be covered: mesa top, streamside and high altitude (Camp May).
