2019 was the Centerville-Washington Park District’s 9th year documenting butterflies in Grant Park!
All results are sent to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History to be included with other data from around the state. In 2019, we counted 190 individual butterflies during 10 surveys. Monarch numbers were at a record high! We also spotted a larger than usual number of Tiger Swallowtails.
Top butterfly species observed:
Eastern Tailed Blue
