EMPIRE-SAUK FIELD TRIP

Field Trip: Butterflies and Flowers

Sunday, June 16 – 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Location: Mounds View Grassland

Come hike into the Schurch-Thomson Prairie and A to Z units of TPE’s Mounds View Grassland to see how the burgeoning Baltimore checkerspot butterfly population is doing.  We will see wood lilies and many other flowers and butterflies along the way.

WHAT TO WEAR/BRING:

Be prepared for a long hike (some off trail) and bring binoculars for butterfly viewing (the closer they can focus the better).

WORK PARTY LEADER:

If you plan to attend, please let the trip leader know at least 12 hours in advance, in case of last-minute changes in the schedule or cancelation due to severe weather.  Also contact them if you have questions.

DIRECTIONS:

Address is 8624 Reilly Road, Barneveld.  From the intersection of US Hwy 18-151 and County F (south of Blue Mounds in western Dane County), take F approximately 5 miles south.  Turn right onto Reilly Road, and proceed to parking lot and kiosks at the end of the road (past the barn).   (Note: A half mile down F from 18-151, pay close attention to the road signs, for F turns to the right & the straight ahead road becomes County Z.  Stay on F.)
