The North American Butterfly Association will hold a butterfly count in Monroeville on Saturday.

PPG’s Monroeville Business & Technology Center, 440 College Park Drive, will host the 20th annual event, scheduled for 10 a.m. to noon Saturday. Registration begins in the lobby at 9:30 a.m. Rain date will be July 21.

A limited number of butterfly nets will be available, so participants are encouraged to bring their own nets. There will be refreshments and a door prize drawing at noon. Treats will be provided for the children in attendance.

For more information, contact PPG at 724-325-5100. Additional information about the NABA butterfly counts can be found at www.naba.org.
