Meetings are open to the public at no charge. They usually include slide presentations on topics related to butterflies. See Meetings for the upcoming schedule.
SEABA Field Trips
Field trips are scheduled frequently throughout the year. See Field Trips for currently scheduled field trips. We often add trips on short notice based on reports of butterflies seen and we announce them via email to members and post them on the website as quickly as possible. Join SEABA to find out more about all our field trips and join our members email list.
