Course overview

Midsummer through early fall offer a diversity of butterflies and their associated host plants distinctly different from the butterfly fauna of spring and early summer. Participants will learn to identify butterflies in the mid-Atlantic that fly from midsummer through frost, organized by the time of their principal flight period; study the principles of butterfly classification; observe and understand migration in many of the late-season butterflies; observe and document caterpillar host and adult nectarsources; and participate in citizen-science documentation of butterfly diversity and abundance. Two all-day and one half-day field trips will include a focus on butterfly conservation in a variety of habitats. If minimum student enrollment is not reached by one week before the scheduled start date, the course may be canceled. Field Trip Dates: August 19, August 26, and September 2, 2017 (2 required; Sunday rain dates).
