Finding Butterflies in Texas: A Guide to the Best Sites

by Wauer, Roland


Texas has more butterflies than any other state, but itís difficult to know where to start in a state this large. Ro Wauer traveled from the Lower Rio Grande Valley of south Texas to the northern Panhandle and from the Pineywoods in the east to the western Trans-Pecos region to find seventy-six of the best places in the state to watch butterflies.

Popular butterfly sites near major metropolitan areas and tourist destinations are included for the visitor with limited time as well as sites that offer butterflies not easily found elsewhere in Texas. Sometimes the species are so rare it is not typical to find them anywhere else in the United States. The book includes well-known sites such as the NABA International Butterfly Garden in the Lower Rio Grande Valley and smaller locally known areas, such as the Gus Engeling Wildlife Management Area southeast of Dallas. Visitors and native Texans will enjoy finding and identifying the rare and beautiful butterflies of Texas.
