Field Trip – Butterflies on Lakeshore Drive with John Walas

Sunday, June 30 @ 1:00 PM

Join us on June 30th, (weather permitting) for a butterfly excursion as we explore what butterflies are out and about. The weather is expected to be 21C and sunny, with mild wind – a perfect day for butterflying! John Walas will lead our group to an area just up on Lakeshore Drive. We will look to see if we can find the satyr comma, green comma, gray comma, the pearl crescent, Milbert’s and Compton’s tortoiseshells, the elfins midsummer skippers, and the tiger swallowtails.

This should be a fairly easy outing with regard to trekking and footwear as it will be drier and walking will be easier than going to Mills Block, along with a lower density of mosquitoes. However, there are trails through some forested areas as well as rock outcrops and there may be some wet areas along the trails, but we can try and walk around them. Please dress appropriately.

We will meet at the Strathcona Golf Course parking lot closest to the Hodder Avenue entrance across from Robin’s Donuts.
