Celebrate July 4th at this beautiful private preserve that consists of remnant and restored wetlands, remnant bluff prairie, restored tall grass prairie, and dry hilly oak-hickory woodland. In past years, we have observed an impressive variety of dragonflies and butterflies as we explored the different habitats. Bring binoculars (close-focusing ones work best). (We will have a few extra binoculars.)
Bring your own lunch and beverages to enjoy when we finish the trip at noon, by driving up to the bluff-top picnic shelter.
Leaders are Tod Highsmith, Karl and Dorothy Legler. This is a joint trip of the Southern Wisconsin Butterfly Association (SWBA) and The Prairie Enthusiasts (TPE).
Meet at 9:30 a.m. This trip will last until 1:00 p.m.
