Rare Regal Fritillary Butterfly Tour at Fort Indiantown Gap Gets the iSportsman Touch

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA — Fort Indiantown Gap (FTIG), PA is gearing up for their yearly butterfly tours, and this year the process was made easier with iSportsman. The tours are generally hosted in the first week of July and often draw more than the tour limit of 340 persons over two weekends. To ease the confusion and labor burden of running the tours manually, iSportsman worked with the FTIG team to make sure their vision to go “digital” was put into action. By creating tour-specific permits, iSportsman proved to be an ideal solution for crowd control and tour management. All available permits on the FTIG iSportsman system sold out in a little over two weeks, proving that demand was still high.

The iSportsman team’s capacity for client support does not end behind their desks. iSportsman representatives, Michelle LaFever and Mikaela Reedy, are traveling to Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, to support the FTIG butterfly tours in person.

“It’s exciting,” says Reedy, “We spend every day on the phone offering technical support to our clients. The opportunity to be there in person for such a unique event, is something I’ve been looking forward to.”

These tours allow the public to see this rare butterfly and its associated grassland habitat as well as many of the other species of animals and plants on the 17,000-acre military installation that is normally closed to the public. Many of these plants and animals are rare and are protected by the military as a conservation concern.
