Field trip Boyce Thompson Arboretum with Ron Rutowski and Laura Miller


At Boyce Thompson Arboretum

Saturday, June 25, 2022
7:30 AM - 9:30 AM

We have rescheduled and changed our June field trip. It was too dry in Prescott to draw enough butterflies to make it worth the drive. Instead, we will host a trip to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum on Saturday, June 25, to see what is flying about. A recent trip found many queens and swallowtails around the blooming tenaza trees. Some skippers, sulphurs, blues, and other species were found, as well as some nice dragonflies at the lake. We will begin our walk at 7:30 AM at the visitor center. It will be getting warm quickly, so we want to head out early and promptly. Knowing our group, we'll probably stop for anything that flies, crawls, slithers, hops, or runs across our path. BTA is always a great place to see birds, insects, amphibians, and reptiles. Depending on the weather, some folks may want to continue to up the pond below the mine at Oak Flat to see what's going on up there. We invite anyone who visits BTA that morning to join us -- so we may have some newbies with questions. That's the way most of us began! Please advised that admission to BTA is $15 for non-members. We will not ask for a donation to CAZBA this time. So we can plan, please register for this this event on Ticketleap. Please us this: link: http://cazba.ticketleap.com/cazba---boyce-thompson.../
