Missouri Butterfly Monitoring Network

The Butterfly House, a division of the Missouri Botanical Garden, has brought organized Pollard based butterfly monitoring programs to Missouri to further our mission of fostering a greater understanding of plant and animal relationships in the environment in order to promote the conservation and restoration of natural habitats. Surveys began in 2016 with 12 routes (a quick start!). By the end of 2017, we have completed almost 200 surveys along 14 routes.
