The Butterflies of Kitty Todd

Meet Jan Dixon at 11:00 a.m. at the Kitty Todd Preserve parking lot at 10420 Old State Line Road in Swanton. This should be the height of the butterfly season, and with good temperatures and sun we will see a nice variety of butterflies. Of special interest will be the Hairstreaks that fly during early July. With luck, we could see 5-6 species, including the Acadian, which is unique to Kitty Todd. Please bring water. Protected shoes and long pants are recommended.
