Sighting for July 1, 2019

John and Nancy Crosby

Moon Prairie Road
Jackson County, OR

Took I-5 from Medford S to Exit 14, Route 66 East 2 miles to Dead Indian Memorial Hwy to Lily Glen Equestrian Park at Milemarker 18 where we saw Snowberry Checkerspot. Then 3.4 miles to Moon Prairie Road, difficult to see dirt road entrance. Moon Prairie Road is extremely rocky & a short hike will be required if not in a high clearance vechicle. The Mardon Skipper Exclosure on the left. Extreme care should be taken to protect the environment. The Variable Checkerspot was a Snowberry.
