We are BEST, the local chapter of the North American Butterfly Association (NABA), an international, non-profit organization. Like NABA chapters all across the continent, we work to increase public enjoyment and conservation of butterflies, by focusing on the joys of non-consumptive, recreational butterflying including; listing, gardening, rearing, conservation and photography.

  • Our events are open to all ages and backgrounds.
  • We sponsor numerous butterfly counts scattered throughout Southeast Texas.
  • We promote butterfly conservation at area schools, within other local organizations, and at local festivals.
  • We have a lot of FUN!!! Come join us!! No previous knowledge or experience with butterflies is necessary!
