 This time of year, May & June, citizen scientists hike through Cowiche Canyon near Yakima in search of Coronis Fritillary.  It's a butterfly that migrates to the mountains and back ... at least that's what experts think.  Dr. David James with Washington State University wants to know for sure and is leading the research project to find out what the butterfly does during the summer.  For more information visit http://www.cowichecanyon.org
