2018 Annual Report: Moths & Butterflies of Grizzly Peak Preserve
AUTHOR: Dana Ross (Entomologist/Lepidoptera Specialist)
The Grizzly Peak Preserve was sampled for butterflies and moths during May, June and October, 2018. A grand total of 218 species were documented and included 170 moths and 48 butterflies. These are presented as an annotated checklist in the appendix of this report. Butterflies and day-flying moths were sampled during daylight hours with an insect net. Nocturnal moths were collected using battery-powered backlight traps over single night periods at 10 locations during each monthly visit.
iNaturalist Grizzly Peak Preserve Biodiversity Project
STARTED: January 2018
The Grizzly Peak Preserve Biodiversity Project was started as a way to encourage visitors to participate in meaningful citizen-science by adding their observations, contributing not only to the biological inventories of the preserve, but also highlighting the outstanding biodiversity of the greater Cascade-Siskiyou eco-region.
iNatualist is an online gathering place for naturalists to record and corroborate their findings.
