Fieldtrip to the Superstitions - with Ron Rutowski


At Apache Trail

Saturday, March 16, 2024
9:00 AM - 2:30 PM

Join us Saturday, March 16, in a search for butterflies typical of the upper Sonoran Desert in the spring. This trip will go up the Apache Trail into the Superstition Mountains. We will meet at the junction of the Apache Trail (State Route 88) and North First Water Road at 9:00 AM. There is an informal parking area there on the north side of North First Water Road, just as you start onto that road. From there we will venture up the Apache Trail stopping at Tortilla Creek, Mesquite Flat, and the Fish Creek Overlook. These have proven to be productive locations for seeing butterflies in the past. As usual, wear good hiking shoes and a hat and bring binoculars, water, and snacks/lunch. A donation of $5 per person to benefit CAzBA will be appreciated.If you have any questions about this trip, please email the leader, Ron Rutowski (rrutowski at cox dot net).
