Join us at Terra Cotta Conservation Area to celebrate the end of Credit Valley Conservation’s first summer-long Butterfly Blitz!

We would like to thank everyone that contributed to Butterfly Blitz. Your observations helped expand our knowledge of the distribution of butterfly species in the Credit River Watershed. Together we observed over 55 different butterfly species and submitted over 800 observations.

At this event, Butterfly Blitz participants will gather to submit timed survey data sheets, hear an overview of the project results, discuss exciting field finds and marvel at some fantastic butterfly shots ! Prizes will be awarded for the following categories: most species, rarest find, most observations and the lucky day prize.

The second half of the event will include a guided hike through the conservation area, with one last chance to find and submit butterfly observations for the 2019 Butterfly Blitz. There may even be a friendly competition between two hiking groups.

The general public is welcome to attend; admission to the park is free. Bring a reusable mug and/or water bottle. Light refreshments will be served.

Since the event is outdoors, remember to dress for the weather. Should the weather be unfavorable, be sure to check our social media and website for cancellation information or call 905-670-1615 ext. 221. If you have accessibility requirements, please notify the staff lead to arrange accommodations.
