"Butterflies at
the Barrens
What is a brush footed
butterfly and how does
one photograph it? Find
out at the Namekagon
Barrens Wildlife Area
(NBWA) in northeastern
Burnett County. Explore a
habitat that is globally rare.
Combined with the Douglas
County Bird Sanctuary and
Crex Meadows Wildlife Area, NBWA is part of a “barrens corridor” that is home to species of
birds, butterflies, plants, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and insects that are, in some cases,
exclusive to barrens habitat. This one-day workshop will feature an introduction to the history of
the Barrens and present management, butterfly photography instruction, and tips on how and
where to look for butterflies and which ones can be found on the Barrens. During the afternoon
we will hike the area to find, identify, and practice photographing butterflies. Come and enjoy a
unique experience for photographers and naturalists alike! Bring your camera and a bag lunch,
and dress for the outdoors.
Instructors: Dale Bohlke & Dean Hanson
