About WABC


Purpose:  To promote the appreciation, understanding, study and conservation of butterflies and their habitats throughout the central Atlantic states and central Appalachia.

WABC members contribute to scientific knowledge about the ecological requirements and life histories of local butterflies through field trips and field studies.

WABC members work with community groups, businesses, and government entities to preserve or restore habitat critical to the sustainability of local butterfly populations.

WABC members serve as resources for formal and informal education and regional record maintenance about butterflies, their life histories, their distribution and abundance or scarcity, and their ecology.

WABC members plan and develop butterfly-friendly gardens and landscape designs for personal and public enjoyment.

WABC members mentor and support future generations of Lepidoptera enthusiasts, and welcome the opportunity to share their knowledge of the area’s butterfly fauna with anyone interested in the lives of these remarkable creatures.
