Butterfly counters needed by the Clermont parks

Can you tell the difference between a swallowtail and a Pearl Crescent butterfly?  You will be able to, if you become a citizen scientist with the Clermont County Park District.

Volunteers are needed to take part in the weekly butterfly count at the Chilo Lock #34 Park in Franklin Township.

“It’s a great outdoor activity for the entire family,” said Clermont Parks’ naturalist Laura Hoople.  “The count helps us determine seasonal flight patterns, and whether new species of the winged creatures are moving into the area.”
