LUNCHBOX Talk: How to Identify and Record Butterflies at Mason Farm Biological Reserve with Kati Moore, Biologist and Science Writer; Laura Hamon, Biologist. Butterflies are ubiquitous in our gardens and wild spaces, but their enormous diversity can be daunting for naturalists. Join us for a crash course on local butterfly identification, covering tips and tricks for distinguishing between similar species. Participants will also be introduced to the Mason Farm Butterfly Project, a citizen science project with the goal of collecting long-term data on the abundance and timing of butterflies at Mason Farm Biological Reserve.
