This colorful, thorough and easy to follow guide to the butterflies of Central Nebraska is small enough to fit in your pocket and complete enough to cover nearly every species you will encounter in this region. See selected images from the guide below.
In addition to high-quality, color photographs, the images are presented life-size to aid with field identification. In many cases, there are clear arrows pointing out specific parts about the butterfly descriptions. Finally, the butterflies are sorted by color and size to make it easy to compare similar looking species.
While it is dedicated to Nebraska’s Central Platte River Valley, many of the butterflies here are found statewide, particularly in the Eastern portion of the state.
We are taking pre-orders now. Our partners at the Nebraska Master Naturalist Program are making the book available for a minimum donation of $15. You can donate here and your book will be shipped at the conclusion of the fundraising campaign. Proceeds go to support this amazing program which educates and mobilizes Nebraskans in conservation activities.
