Butterflies

On July 14, 2013, volunteers throughout the area took part in the North America Butterfly Count. Bryan Park was chosen as one of the count sites.  Look at what they found in the woods, woods’ margin and open field habitats.  Thank you goes to the Richmond Audubon Society and the Riverine Chapter of Virginia Master Naturalists for compiling this list.
