We have over 140 NABA-MBC members covering the spectrum from novices to prominent lepidopterists. Many members lead field trips and present programs for all ages on butterfly identification and behavior and butterfly gardening. Go to our field trips webpage for a list of field trips and other activities. Our Fall and Spring members' meetings feature well-known speakers. Furthermore, we have compiled a library of slides for most of the Massachusetts butterflies (including all stages for some species). These materials are available for club members to use.
