Annual Butterfly Count

monarch-butterfly-lg3.jpg

It’s butterfly season again! Join Audubon Society of Rhode Island naturalists and other butterfly enthusiasts for the 11th annual North American Butterfly Association (NABA) Butterfly Count, held on July 18, 2015. Beginners are welcome on these naturalist-led walks that teach butterfly identification and promote the understanding of butterfly ecology in our state.

We still have openings for counters on July 18 at Newman Farm and Powder Mill Ledges Wildlife Refuge (Audubon's headquarters in Smithfield).  Both counts meet at the headquarters at 10:00AM on the 18th.

 “This is the twelth year we have hosted the butterfly count,” said Scott Ruhren, Audubon’s Senior Director of Conservation. “We’re excited to get out in the field and see just how many species we can find. Participants can choose from seven beautiful locations across the state with known butterfly populations. Team members help to spot butterflies and our naturalists will record them and provide identification tips. Before long, everyone on the team will is identifying different butterfly species. It’s a fun way to learn about these beautiful creatures.”


All naturalist-led walks meet at 10:00 am and most finish at 12:00 pm, the complete schedule is listed below. There is a suggested donation of $5 to support the North American Butterfly Association. All participants must register to receive survey protocols and to confirm sites within the survey areas. Contact Jon Scoones for more information or to register CLICK HERE.

Providence Peregrine Webcam

NOW LIVE!

Perched high above the streets of Providence, 30 floors up, they inhabit the very top of what is perhaps Providence's most recognizable building (often referred to as the Superman Building.)

Yet the "new" family of Peregrine Falcons is always in the camera's eye. 

In an arrangement involving the building owner, Audubon Society of Rhode Island, Cox Business and other private donors, the Peregrine Falcon nesting box can be viewed live online thanks to the cameras trained on the magnificent raptors who have made their home there for over a decade.
