Seen Any Butterflies Lately?


UMass Extension needs your help. The Extension has been hearing from people who perceive a decline in the state's butterfly population, but it does not have enough data to either verify or refute that perception. To collect the data, the Extension is asking state residents to take a survey that asks about the butterflies they have seen in their yards.

SVT has been hearing similar comments about butterflies from attendees at our webinar programs, so we’re eager to see the survey results, too. Please participate!
