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 5pm. Please bring a favorite dish to share.
The meeting will include:
Fund-raising auction - Please bring items to donate to an auction to be held at the meeting.
Short-tailed Swallowtails in Newfoundland - Elise Barry and Steve Moore will present a short report on a trip to Newfoundland in late June.
Baltimore Checkerspots at home - Don Adams will share with us the history and development of the Baltimore Checkerspot colony he has followed at his home for many years.
Reminiscences - Members will be invited to share the important, funny, poignant and other memorable moments of the season just ending.
