New Butterfly Conservation Web Site

Today the Massachusetts Butterfly Club announced a new area on their website dedicated to butterfly conservation. Here, you can find: (1) a list of things individuals can do to promote butterfly conservation, including a gardening handout that can be printed out; (2) mowing guidelines for fields and grasslands, which can also be printed out and distributed to anyone; and (3) a list of articles and resources on habitat needs of particular species, many available right on the page as PDF files. This is a great resource for individuals and organizations, for property managers, and for stewardship organizations, among others. It has a bit of a Massachusetts slant, but the general concepts and information are applicable far beyond that state. The page and files can be accessed here.
