We hope you enjoy our site, whether you are a visitor or a member. We are a chapter of the North American Butterfly Association, dedicated to conserving butterflies and their habits, and we cover the Sarasota county area. Chapter membership is free when you join NABA and live within our area. Our season runs from September through May with some activities in the summer. We have field trips, programs, plant exchanges, and garden tours. We maintain a butterfly garden that is open to the public, free of charge, and handicapped accessible. We also do community outreach and educational programs. We have a newsletter that keeps you informed about upcoming activities. We look forward to hearing from you here and at our events.
