MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- State wildlife officials are looking for volunteers to help count a rare butterfly this summer.
The Department of Natural Resources plans to conduct a population survey of the Karner blue butterfly from June through August. The postage stamp-sized butterfly is on the federal endangered species list. Populations have been identified in the White River, Greenwood, and Meadow Valley wildlife areas, Mecan River Fishery Area and Black River State Forest.
The DNR will offer training for Karner blue counters on at the Wild Rose Hatchery Education Center in Wild Rose on May 22 and at the Black River Falls Service Center in Black River Falls on May 23.
