Who We Are

Within Illinois there are many natural areas that have to be managed to maintain their biological diversity. Historically, management activities involved plant communities. In 1987, the Nature Conservancy created the Butterfly Monitoring Network to assess the effects of management on animals. The Chicago Academy of Sciences’ Notebaert Nature Museum has collaborated with this successful effort to explore the effects that habitat management has on butterfly populations. Based on this effective model, the Dragonfly Monitoring Network was created.
