A Letter From the Editor

Since its beginning in 1993, Massachusetts Butterflies has been an important source of information about butterflies in our state. The Spring issue each year contains a review and listing of the previous season's sightings, and the Fall issue contains the results of the NABA Fourth of July Counts in the state. There are many other interesting articles. In the past, the journal was available only to those who joined the Club as members, but henceforth we plan to post back issues on this website after a one-year time lag.
