"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
