The annual Goose Pond Sanctuary Butterfly Count will be held on Monday, July 2, 2018! This count is part of the Mud Lake National Butterfly Count, and is one piece of a network of counts held throughout the country to document the diversity and abundance of our scaly-winged friends each year.

All are welcome to participate and butterfly identification expertise is not required. We will provide you with resources (nets, guides, etc.) that will help you with the count. Meet at the MAS Goose Pond Sanctuary Kampen Road residence (W7503 Kampen Road, Arlington) at 9:00 a.m. We will divide into teams and count butterflies till noon, then we will head out for lunch and back at it after lunch till 4:00 p.m.
