Review results 2021 Butterfly Counts in Central Arizona and COVID guidelines


At Papago Buttes Church of the Brethren, 2450 N. 64th Street, Scottsdale

Thursday, October 28, 2021
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

We are looking forward to our meeting tomorrow night and hearing about the amazing results of the recent butterfly counts in Central Arizona. However, please be advised that because of the state of COVID in Arizona, we will encourage participants to take precautions against COVID. Right now, transmission rate is rated as HIGH in Maricopa County and as a result it is recommended that all participants in indoor meetings be masked (https://www.cdc.gov/TemplatePackage/contrib/widgets/covidcountycheck/) Hence, we will encourage everyone to put on a mask as they enter the building and keep it on except while eating and drinking. Also, individuals who are feeling ill or who suspect they may recently have been exposed to COVID are asked not to attend the meeting. We appreciate your help in keeping this meeting safe for all participants. At this meeting of the Central Arizona Butterfly Association led by our president, Ron Rutowski, we will review the results of the three butterfly counts that were done in Central Arizona in 2021. The results will be compared to previous years and we will explore the causes of year-to-year in the number of species and individuals recorded. There will be plenty of time for questions. You may even bring some identification challenges on a memory stick if you'd like. This will provide an opportunity for us to learn from each other, while taste testing Laura's savory homemade cookies and lemonade.
