Please join Washtenaw Audubon Society next Thursday (July 12) to search for some of the beautiful butterflies that make this area their home. This field trip is great for all levels of interest, including those who know nothing (yet) about these little gems. At a time of year that is typically slow for birding, it is perfect for insects. Join butterfly experts Roger Wykes, John Swales and Roger Kuhlman, as well as Washtenaw Audubon Field Trip Chair Bryn Martin. Meet at 10am at Pittsfield Preserve south of Ann Arbor. We will be meeting at the entrance off of the east side of Marton Road, between Morgan and Textile. Please dress appropriately for the weather, and if the heat wave continues, hydrate and protect yourself from the sun and heat appropriately. Plan on being out for a few hours. Look forward to seeing you there!

NOTE: We are told that Textile Road is under construction and that it may be impassable during the week. Attendees may be better off arriving via Morgan Road, then south on Marton Road to the Preserve parking lot.
