Beth and others on the recent Carroll County count over the July 4 weekend and past counts had some pretty good looks at such target species as Edwards’ hairstreak, coral hairstreak, and Baltimore checkerspot.  Beth’s going to lead us back to some of the hotspots on Saturday the 23rd.  Let’s hope for good weather next weekend!
