Frank Bader

The 2008 Mercer Butterfly Count, sponsored by WCAS, will be held on Sunday July 13. If you are interested in participating, please contact me at either frank.bader@comcast.net or 609-530-1229. Please give me some indication of your experience and skill in identifying butterflies, including skippers (the LBJ's of the butterfly world) so he can match beginners and novices with more experienced butterfliers.
