Description:

Project Butterfly WINGS: Winning Investigative Network for Great Science engages youth ages 9 to 13 in butterfly investigations designed to develop science inquiry and life skills. WINGS participants explore the outdoors, learn to identify common butterflies, and contribute to science by surveying butterflies and sharing their results online. This dataset provides information about the distribution and population trends of common butterfly species. Funded in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation (ESI-0406173), WINGS was developed by the University of Florida’s Florida Museum of Natural History and Florida Cooperative Extension Service. WINGS is a Reviewed and Recommended National 4-H Curriculum, available at http://www.4-hmall.org/curriculum.
