Chris Herz has moved up the date of her field trip one week to take advantage of milkweeds now blooming (or about to bloom) throughout South Jersey. Here’s her updated notice:
Butterfly field trip to Medford Leas
1 Medford Leas Dr., Medford, NJ
Sat. July 2nd 9:45am (note date change from 7/9!)
There are a variety of habitats here, and we will walk around the community garden, and then go to the surrounding fields. Bring close-focus binoculars, water, hat, sunscreen, bug spray, & lunch. There is a Wawa on Rte. 70 if coming from the west, where you could pick up lunch.
I recommend wearing long pants due to the possibility of ticks.
Meet at the tennis courts’ parking area next to the horticultural building. Once you turn into Medford Leas Drive — a right jughandle at traffic light — stay to your left and at the t-intersection, turn right, and then take the immediate left. Continue around until you see the horticultural building with greenhouse and just past it turn left into the parking area. The tennis courts will be straight ahead.
For detailed directions from Rt. 295 and Rt. 70 visit the Medford Leas website:http://www.medfordleas
Trip is cancelled if it rains. Contact me if in doubt, Chris Herz 856-534-5597 cell.
