Become a Michigan Butterfly Network Partner City!

This project would not be possible without the involvement of partner organizations across Michigan. The Michigan Butterfly Network is always looking to extend its reach within the state to gain a more accurate account of the butterfly populations. We welcome partner organizations across Michigan to join us in an effort to conserve our local butterfly populations.

Opportunities for partner organizations:

  • Advertise and publicize the Michigan Butterfly Network to attract and engage new volunteers in the region
  • Hold monitor training sessions for volunteers in the spring of every year using established Michigan Butterfly Network protocol
  • Work with volunteers to establish census routes and sites
  • Manage and communicate with volunteers
  • Participate in meetings, events, workshops, etc. for state-wide and regional collaborators
  • Submit data to the Michigan Butterfly Netowrk
  • View the full Regional Coordinator Description and contact Jennifer Meilinger with inquiries.
