Harney County, Oregon is known as a butterfly hotspot as well as a migratory bird stop along the Pacific Flyway. We will base our butterfly and moth studies at Malheur Field Station, where we’ll learn both typical and rare species historically seen in southeast Oregon in a classroom session and studying collected specimens. Then we’ll foray to alkaline lakes and hot springs, landscaped areas, bogs and high-elevation sites including Steens Mountain in search of summer butterflies including checkerspots, swallowtails, fritillaries, metalmarks, blues and whites.
