NATURE — The public is invited to join a wildlfie biologist and a lepidopterist for day of learning about butterflies in Northeast Washington on Saturday.

As part of National Pollinator Week, the Little Pend Oreille National Wildlife Refuge will be hosting the North American Butterfly Association’s 38th annual Fourth of July Butterfly Count — on June 23.

The group will meet at the refuge headquarters at 8:45 a.m. Saturday and start the count at 9 a.m.

Plan to spend the day in the field.

A$3 participant fee helps offset the program and printing costs.

In the event of inclement weather the count may be postponed.
