Will Kerling will be leading our group’s first field trip of 2016 — to one of his favorite stomping grounds: Lizard Tail Swamp Preserve in Cape May County.
This will be a joint trip with our friends, the NABA North Jersey Butterfly Club.
Frosted elfin is one target species, but if the weather cooperates, we should see a good number of other early May species. Will has recorded 72 species for Lizard Tail, more than he has found for any other of the many Cape May County locales he has explored over the years.
Our start time is 10 am, Sunday, May 8. We will meet in the Preserve parking lot on Courthouse/South Dennis Road (County Rd 657). See the attached pdf for directions.
Participation is free, of course. Join us if you can!
