Northern Kettle Moraine NABA Count

Location: Within a 15-mile circle centered on Northern Kettle Moraine State Forest.
Fond du Lac County

This was the 24th annual NABA Count at Northern Kettle Moraine. On a sunny day 7 observers in 4 parties used binoculars to identify 519 butterflies of 37 species. We put in 16 1/2 hours of observing. The Variegated Fritillary was new to the count. Thanks to the counters, Douglas Buege, Skye Hamsberger, Fred Dike, Karl and Dorothy Legler, Dave Hogg and Mike Reese.
