      Hi,

      The North American Butterfly Association (NABA) will be holding their next
      national biennial meeting in the Kern River Valley in 2006. Tentative dates
      are
      June 22-25, 2006. Many of the participants will also be active birders who
      will
      take advantage of the opportunity to notice the birds in the Kern River Valley
      (KRV) and Southern Sierra Nevada (SSN) during their stay.

      In order to get ready for the 2006 NABA meeting here in California, exposing
      people interested in butterflies to the KRV/SSN butterflying areas is
      critical.
      To that end, following is a schedule of currently scheduled NABA Butterfly
      Counts and field trips in the KRV/SSN in 2005 and 2006...

      Please mark your calendars and spread the word including via other list
      servs...
