Event Details

This year Credit Valley Conservation and The Riverwood Conservancy are hosting the first Butterfly Blitz in the Credit River Watershed. This citizen science program will create a watershed-wide inventory of butterflies.

Local environmental enthusiasts and residents can learn how to identify different butterfly species in their neighbourhoods and contribute findings to the program.

Data will help us learn about local butterfly populations and identify trends over time. Once established, the Butterfly Blitz database will provide valuable insight to help protect and restore wildlife habitat in the Credit River Watershed.

Join our iNaturalist Project and submit photo observations of butterflies in the Credit River Watershed. Observations are welcome between June 22 and August 24 from anywhere: public parks, school grounds, your own property, gardens, fields and forests in watershed.

Data collected will be used for:

  • range mapping (tracking their locations)
  • first and last detections
  • variety of species
  • identifying rare species;

Not an expert? Not a problem! Anyone can contribute to iNaturalist, and it’s a great way to learn. If you already know a bit about butterflies, or want to commit more time to the project, we’ve got options for that, too. Everyone is welcome!
