Training is necessary to become a butterfly monitor. The Kalamazoo Nature Center or your closest regional hub will provide you with training on how to follow the protocol of the Michigan Butterfly Network. In addition, there is training provided on how to identify the butterflies you are likely to encounter. Training usually consists of 1-2 workshops indoors and a separate day in the field for practice.
Our 2015 training dates will be here before you know it so mark you calendars!
