|Most of these events are part of the
North American Butterfly Association (NABA) Butterfly Count program.
Do not hesitate

be a leader in your group who can identify butterflies and this will be
a good learning experience for you.
For the NABA
counts, please note this policy: All observers, regardless of their age,
who contribute to the count, must be listed as observers and pay the count fee.
Children who are accompanied by an adult and who do not significantly contribute
as observers should not be listed.
publishes a report with lists from all of the counts. The report can be ordered

GEOLOGY FIELD TRIPS
The Kansas Geological Survey formerly led
interesting non-technical field trips to explore Kansas. Although they
have discontinued this service, you can download their trip guidebooks at the GeoKansas web site
and recreate these journeys of discovery on your own! This page also has
links to highlights from some of the past field trips.
