The Illinois Butterfly Monitoring Network (IBMN) is a citizen scientist program monitoring the health of butterfly populations throughout northeastern and central Illinois, with several monitoring sites in northwest Indiana.
The Network serves to engage citizen scientists in the process of collecting quantitative data on butterfly populations. The goal is to provide data collected with a standardized protocol that allows land managers to evaluate long-term trends in a changing landscape and to document the presence of rare, threatened and endangered species. The Network also provides opportunities for fellowship, information sharing, mentorship, and continuing education between citizen scientists and professional biologists through various field trips and workshops.
