As you huddle against the cold and wind that have now persisted deep into March, and you fantasize about the appearance of the first azures, maybe you can perk up your spirits by marking your calendar for the field trips we have planned for the coming year:
Glassboro area (Gloucester County), led by Dave Amadio, April 25.
Warren Grove (Burlington/Ocean County) May 16 [CANCELLED]
McNamara WMA (Cape May County), led by Jack Miller, May 23.
Franklin Parker Preserve (Burlington County), led by Stephen Mason, June 13
Selected areas in Salem County, led by Dave Amadio, August 1.
Details of times and meeting places will be posted here on the blog as we get closer to those dates. And we may possibly be adding another trip or two to this list — depending on turn-out for these and our volunteer leaders’ schedules.
If you are willing to lead a trip to any area in South Jersey, please email me (nacotejackATgmailDOTcom) with a date, a brief site description, and list of a few of the species we might hope to see. I’d would be happy to add other trips to the set above.
Also, if you are leading a trip for another group about butterflies and you are willing to let members of our group tag along, just let me know that and I will add that to our list as well.
Keep exploring, everyone.
