Join Tampa Bay Butterfly Foundation and NABA Tampa Bay on a butterfly walk to continue our monthly monitoring of butterfly species at Violet Cury Preserve in Lutz at 1802 Sinclair Hills Road. This count has more than a 20 year history with NABA. This is 1 of the 4 locations we will count in July for the annual NABA official count. We can see between 28-46 speices. The loop is easily navigated and estimated at 1-1.5 miles. It can take 1 1/2 - 2 hours depending on how distracted we get with the wildlife that may be out. We have see tortoises, lots of bird species, several dragonfly species, and we look at anything that moves when we are on the counts.
Plan for the outdoors, heat, mosquitoes, no-see-ums, getting feet wet if you don’t wear the right shoes to avoid it. Bring plenty of water to drink and a snack if you want.
Come join us to help monitoring populations of butterflies in this beautiful park. This will be free for NABA members; non-NABA members fee: $5 (payment required morning of event).
