Volunteers of all ages can head to the country and help out a scientific cause when UofL biology professor emeritus Charles Covell leads his annual butterfly count. Participants should meet at 9:30 a.m. in the parking lot of Sugar Babe Antiques, 7511 Highway 329 in Crestwood, about one mile northwest of Interstate 71’s Exit 14. The count will be done in a specified area from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., although volunteers aren’t required to stay the whole time. The expedition, which has been going on for 40 years, contributes to the national butterfly census and has tabulated more than 32,000 butterflies. Contact Covell, 502-639-2691.
