Get a hands-on introduction to the butterflies and diurnal moths of the Siskiyous & Southern Oregon Cascades. We’ll begin day one in the classroom – learning what butterflies and moths do, where/when to find them, and viewing reference collection specimens on display. We’ll then spend the afternoon in the field with nets as we observe, catch and learn more about the species we encounter. Days two (Illinois Valley) & three (Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument) will take place entirely in the field, where you’ll get plenty of hands-on practice netting and identifying a diversity of local species.
