As announced by the PA Department of Military and Veterans Affairs:

>>You have probably heard of our famous “butterfly”…now is your chance to see it up close and personal.  The public is invited to tour Regal Fritillary habitat in an area normally closed to the public and learn how we balance the conservation efforts for this species of concern with military training.

2016 Tour Dates: July 1, 2, 8 and 9

Dates are subject to change depending on military training exercises.

Tour Info: Tours start at 10 a.m. Attendees should arrive a half hour early to attend a required safety briefing and fill out the necessary paperwork to participate. Tours will last approximately 3 hours, but attendees may leave earlier if needed.

Attendees should meet at the Area 12 picnic grove, located at the intersection of Asher Miner Road, Clement Avenue and Route 443. (GPS coordinates in decimal degrees: North 40.431, West 76.591) Participants will park around the Picnic Grove, directly across Clement Avenue from the Recreation Center.
