Let’s meet at my house in Petersburg at 9 a.m. There are no bathrooms at McNamara and parking is problematic, but it’s only five minutes from my house. We can carpool from my place – and ferry anyone back to their own car easily.

My address is 16 Nordic Drive, Petersburg, NJ (may come up as “Woodbine” on Internet maps). From Rt. 610 Dennisville/Petersburg Road, look for Killdeer Road which tees into 610. After turning onto Killdeer, proceed about 50 yards and take the first left which is N. Meadowridge. Proceed another 50+ yards and take the first right onto Nordic. My house is gray. Please feel free to call my home number: 609 628 3440. Once we are under way, I will have my cell: 609-408-1403.

I have seen over 30 species of butterflies at Mac during the week that the trip is scheduled for, including both cloudywing species in near proximity. It also has a rich diversity of plants, herps, and breeding birds. Most everything can be seen from the dirt roads we will follow.

Ticks can be a problem. Staying on the roads, rubber boots, and careful checking are the best ways to prevent them.

The dirt roads can be muddy after rain.

I am looking forward to having folks join me in exploring a delightful area.

It would be helpful for my planning if those thinking about joining the excursion would email me ahead of time: spadefoot53ATgmailDOTcom. Thank you!

Jack Miller
