The Massachusetts Butterfly Club sponsors state-wide butterfly activities to promote education, conservation, interpretation, and fun! We invite people of all ages and levels of expertise to attend our meetings, programs, field trips, and butterfly counts and to become members of our club.

The Fall meeting of the Massachusetts Butterfly Club will be held on Saturday, October 24 at the Broad Meadow Brook Conservation Center at 414 Massasoit Road in Worcester. The potluck supper will start at 5:30 pm. Please bring a favorite dish to share.
Don Adams will be our featured speaker for the evening. He plans to give us a virtual tour of the Baltimore Checkerspot colony at his home, including the history of how he developed it, and what he does now to maintain it.
We also plan on having a fund-raising auction for the benefit of the club, so please begin collecting items that you would like to donate to the auction!
