Butterfly Bio Blitz at the Ocmulgee National Monument

The Ocmulgee National Monument will be hosting their Annual Butterfly Bio Blitz on August 20th.  Here is the information from their facebook page

Join us for our fourth bio blitz held at Ocmulgee National Monument. The event is open to the public and we are encouraging the general public to come out and participate in the event. Participants will help us collect data and identify the different species of butterfly on the park grounds. Butterflies are one of the most beautiful elements of the natural world and ecologically important pollinators, consumers, and food sources for other animals.

Participants will conduct a day of field observations counting butterflies along the trails with Ocmulgee National Monument. Participant will be given a free butterfly bio blitz t-shirt, water bottle, and much more. The park will provide cameras, binoculars, and field guides while supplies last. Participants are encouraged to bring their own cameras, binoculars, and field guides if possible as well as appropriate clothing is required of all participants, including long pants and closed-toed shoes, sun protection, bug spray, water, and snacks.

Children’s education and craft programs available that include: painting a butterfly house and sun catcher wind chime to take home as a souvenir of the event. There will be a toddler’s story time at 11:00 am.
