Plan on meeting at the Supawna Meadows NWR on Lighthouse Road (sometimes called Harrisonville Lighthouse Road) at 9 a.m. There is ample parking in the lot off of Lighthouse Rd. We will likely only be exploring the roadside here for meadow fritillary. We will move on to Salem and Mannington Mills. I also intend to check the Sunset Bridge area roadside in Mannington. In the afternoon we will head out to Alloway, stopping at the Alloway Municipal Garden on Welchville Road, Rt 540, and perhaps visit Marilyn Patterson’s outstanding property for butterflies. There may be one or two other spots to explore, depending on time and potential flights. Bronze coppers are possible on this trip but not guaranteed, as I think they are nearing the end of their 2nd brood here.

Supawna Meadows NWR  is on Lighthouse Rd. between RT 49 & Fort Mott Rd. For more detailed directions (if needed) contact me at dlamadioATcomcastDOTnet.  

Please bring a lunch and the usual creature comforts. The closest WAWA is not very convenient — at the intersection of RT 45 & RT 40 in Woodstown.
