For butterfly novices and botanists who want to complement their flower i.d. skills by learning lepidopteran pollinators. Class begins with an introduction to butterfly physiology, biology and ecology. You’ll learn the explanations behind typical behaviors including puddling and hilltopping and why alterations to high elevation habitats have drastically impacted butterfly populations. You’ll then see preserved Siskiyou butterfly specimens and learn some i.d. basics. The class will then net and inspect butterflies in the Deer Creek area. On Day 2, you’ll locate and identify additional species during a field trip to a high-elevation site.
