We are excited to announce that the Nebraska Master Naturalist Foundation has partnered with Master Naturalists Joanne Langabee and Holly Hofreiter in the production of an Eastern Nebraska Guide to Common Butterflies.  

The region is divided into North, Central and South. The guide includes the most common butterflies in Eastern Nebraska. The butterflies are grouped by Family. The pictures show different characteristics of each butterfly. Included in the description of the butterfly is: Common Name, Scientific Name, Wing Span, Sighting Range, Host Plant, Nectar Plant, Winter Over and then information about how common the butterfly is, where it can be found, and general information about it. The pictures were taken by Joanne Langabee, Loren and Babs Padelford.

Joanne Langabee has been doing butterfly field research at Laurtizen Gardens and Fontenelle Forest since 2015. The Sighting Range used was based on her research. Joanne is a Nebraska Master Naturalist and retired science teacher. Holly Hofreiter has been doing the butterfly field research with Joanne since 2015. Holly is a Nebraska Master Naturalist, retired Science teacher and naturalist.

The guide will be available for a minimum donation of $15. Donations will be accepted through October 1st, shipping is included. If you would like more than one copy please mention it in the comment section of the donation page.

All proceeds go towards the mission of the Nebraska Master Naturalist Foundation. We will be accepting donations now through October 1st. Then will send the guide for its first printing and shipping shortly after.
