If you sign up for a walk with Friends' board member Barbara Woodmansee, you're in for a treat. The last one produced as many as 23 different species of butterflies on a relatively short walk. Without her expert eye, many if not the majority might have been missed by the uneducated eye. So, good news, she's scheduled another walk for Thursday, April 6th. The walk will be along Barnett Creek Road on the Lower Suwannee Refuge.
There is no fee for this event. We would appreciate your emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to come. If there is a large group for the walk we will have additional butterfly experts to help spot and identify these wonderful creatures.
We will start to gather at 8:45 a.m. at the point where Barnett Creek Road intersects with the Nature Drive. At 9:00 Barbara will have an introductory talk. We will start walking at 9:15 and finish by 12:00. Park along the side of the road near where Barnett Creek Road intersects with the Nature Drive.
We will not cover a lot of distance, perhaps a mile out and then back. We will be walking very slowly, watching the sides of the road for our butterflies. It will be good to bring plenty of water, sunscreen, a hat, and bug spray.
