SWBA Field Trip - various stops off Brockway Rd.
Jackson County, WI

Mostly cloudy with temperatures in the 60s. Because of the cool weather a couple of Olympia Marbles were very photogenic and allowed us to take many, many photos. One Red Admiral hitched a ride for about 100 yards along the trail.

94 degrees full sun. Little Breeze. There were surely many more than 100 individuals in the wetlands with the as we only walked a small section and saw so many. Our friend Pierre Howard past president of Georgia Conservancy drove from Atlanta to see them! Sedges the host plants were abundant. The only site in GA that Pierre was aware of was Paulk’s Pasture in Glynn County and they are no longer at Paulk’s so this is a GREAT find for Georgia.
