Colorado Butterfly Monitoring Network (CBMN) is a citizen science project led by Butterfly Pavilion that harnesses the power of volunteers to conserve Colorado butterflies.
CBMN volunteers observe and count butterflies in open spaces and parks multiple times per season, gathering essential data that land managers can use when making conservation decisions. It’s a fantastic chance to get outdoors and learn about butterflies, while having a positive impact on conservation in Colorado.
