Dear BEST Members, Hope this message finds you well. I have decided, out of an abundance of caution, to cancel all BEST Events through the middle of September. At that time , the future BEST Events will be re-evaluated. Take Care!!! Farrar Stockton

View - Butterfly Count - Notes and Advice

We are BEST, the local chapter of the North American Butterfly Association (NABA), an international, non-profit organization. Like NABA chapters all across the continent, we work to increase public enjoyment and conservation of butterflies, by focusing on the joys of non-consumptive, recreational butterflying including; listing, gardening, rearing, conservation and photography. 
  • Our meetings are open to all ages and backgrounds.
  • We conduct monthly field trips both near and far during the flight season.
  • We sponsor numerous butterfly counts scattered throughout Southeast Texas.
  • We promote butterfly conservation at area schools, within other local organizations, and at local festivals.
  • We have a lot of FUN!!! Come join us!! No previous knowledge or experience with butterflies is necessary!
