We are a local chapter supporting locally the mission of NABA in butterfly enjoyment and conservation. We consist of members of NABA who live in the north-central region of Florida. This includes the city of Gainesville, Florida which is located in the county of Alachua (see map). Gainesville is the home of the University of Florida and the Florida Museum of Natural History including the McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity and is a worldwide center of lepidoptera study and activity. The North Central Chapter holds regular meetings presenting educational programs related to the enjoyment and conservation of butterflies as well as participates in regular butterflying field trips focusing on "butterfly observation" and "butterfly gardening".   More than 125 species have been observed in North Central Florida and surrounding areas. Please feel free to browse our site using the menu selections and links supplied. More information about the North Central Chapter can be obtained from Kathy Malone, Chapter President, at .
