A note from count organizer Scott Baron about the Sky Meadows VA count on June 16:
Hi, everyone. A reminder that the Sky Meadows/Thompson butterfly count, which covers parts of Fauquier, Clarke, Warren and Loudoun counties, Va., is scheduled for Saturday June 16. Rain date is Sunday June 17. I’ve heard from some of you re: your availability for the survey.
Please let me know if you want to get into the field on Saturday. All of Sky Meadows SP, Thompson WMA, Blandy Experimental Farm and Blue Ridge Regional Park are available. Plus several miles of the Appalachian Trail and lots of back roads through woods and meadows and farmland. The long range weather forecast for the Paris, Va. area on Saturday is 77F and sunny.
Indicate your preference, if any, as to where you’d like to go. Do you want a partner(s)? What is your experience level?
Count fee required, plus there is a park fee at Sky Meadows and Thompson. Those of us who are counting at Sky Meadows will meet at 9am at the Visitor Center parking lot.
