Cascade-Siskiyou Butterfly Monitoring Network Training

  • Geos Institute 84 4th Street Ashland, OR (map)

The Cascade-Siskiyou Butterfly Monitoring Network is a newly established long-term monitoring program that monitors butterfly populations in the Cascade-Siskiyou bioregion of southwest Oregon and Northern California. The program brings together researchers, land managers, and community scientists to collect data that will inform local conservation efforts and help program managers evaluate long-term population trends and map out regional butterfly distributions.

This half-day workshop will be led by biologists with the Xerces Society and the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument. Classroom topics will include general information on the conservation status of butterflies in Southern Oregon, as well as an overview of our project's goals for 2019. Participants will be trained in a standardized monitoring protocol and will learn how to collect and submit data for the monitoring program. We will spend the latter part of the morning practicing the protocol and butterfly identification at a nearby field site.
