Dallas County Lepidopterists' Society
CALENDAR OF EVENTS
For 2017


Membership in the Dallas County Lepidopterists' Society is free!
Meetings are held in the winter months at theTexas Discovery Gardens at Fair Park; spring, summer and fall we are "in the field" visiting various locations in north Texas to observe, collect and photograph butterflies and moths.
The DCLS Calendar of Events covers all scheduled meetings and field trips as well as other "butterfly happenings" in the area. Field trips are dependent on the weather, so if it looks questionable, be sure to check the website and your email the day of the meeting in case of cancellation!
