Butterfly monitoring held Fridays


GREENVILLE — Darke County Parks needs help! Butterfly habitat is declining, and scientists need to monitor their populations closely.

Every Friday at 2 p.m. from now through September, join a naturalist to hike a pre-set path and record all the butterflies observed. These numbers will then be sent on to the Ohio Lepidopterists for scientific study. There’s no need to be an expert.

A staff member will be present for the hike, and field guides will be provided. Hikes will occur as long as temperatures are above 60 without rain.

For more information, contact the Nature Center at 937-548-0165 or email info@darkecountyparks.org.
