SEABA Meetings

Meetings are held at Tucson Botanical Gardens and are open to the public at no charge. They usually include slide presentations on topics related to butterflies. See Meetings for the upcoming schedule.

SEABA Field Trips

Field trips are scheduled frequently throughout the year. See Field Trips for regular scheduled field trips. We often add trips on short notice based on reports of butterflies seen and we announce them via email and through Field Trips. Join SEABA to find out more about SEABA and get on our email list for all upcoming field trips.
