Join the Vermont Butterfly Big Year!

With the help of an army of citizen scientists, the Vermont Butterfly Big Year aims to record every species of butterfly in Vermont this year. It’s a blend of science, education, competition, enjoyment, and a quest to monitor the changing nature of the state. Learn more and join us in the quest! We've already found 14 species this spring, but there are over 100 species to find across the state this summer.

I'll get as many as I can. Thought it will be iNaturalist only for me. Any thoughts of creating a sub project on here? If not I guess I can just use the new search options to see how many I find.

I think we'd all do a lot better on this if you could turn up the temperature some.

Sorry Charlie, we are looking for complete checklists in eButterfly.

not that it wouldn't be a fun thing to take up along with iNat... but with a two month old baby i think I'll stick to the projects I already have for this year :)

I for sure Charlie. And believe me, for those that are not die hard butterfliers making complete checklists, adding records to iNat is absolutely great. WIthin the year, we hope to have a tool that will pull iNat butterfly data into eButterfly too. But it is a bit complicated......

Of course I've filled out my fair share of inclusive checklists, but for plants :) and i basically try to do that here too. but the site has allowed me to learn so much more about other organisms. Like butterflies. Maybe i can find some leads on places other people can do E-Butterfly in more detail.
