Finding Lane County Butterflies

When the first edition came out in 2004, this was one of, if not the, first butterfly-finding guides in the US.  It is modeled after the popular bird-finding guides that now exist for every popular birding area in the States.  It includes 32 of the best sites for butterflies in Lane County (and a couple just over the line in Linn County).  For each site, it describes when to go, how to get there, and species you are likely to find there.  Using this guide, you can, with some luck, find all of Lane County's almost 90 species.

Butterflies of Lane County

When it was first released in 2002, this pocket-sized field ID guide to the butterflies of Lane County, Oregon was the first of its kind.  Other similar "pocket guides" are appearing around the country as people realize that people don't want to carry around a 5 pound book in the field.  Measuring just 4.5" x 5.5" and weighing in at 3.7 oz., there's no reason NOT to take this with you!
