About CBS

The Carolina Butterfly Society is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization covering the states of North and South Carolina. Membership is open to anyone, however members are primarily residents of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

Our organization emphasizes identifying and watching butterflies in the field and garden rather than collecting them. Every season we organize several butterflying field trips to the various biogeographic regions of the Carolinas. We offer advice on butterfly gardening, encourage photography and record-keeping, provide fact sheets for outdoor educators, sponsor gardening workshops, and collect data for conservation use.
