*Saturday August 27, 10 AM*
*Osbornedale State Park, Derby*
*Leader: Peter DeGennaro 203-598-8577*
We will explore Osbornedale's meadows for late season swallowtails,
hairstreaks, skippers, and other butterflies. With the Housatonic River
bringing in butterflies from the coast, the park can become a great inland
trap for vagrants. The hackberry trees in the park could produce American
Snout and both emperors, and the estate's buddleias enter full bloom this
time of year. Easy, mowed walking trails but bring water and sunscreen.
Directions: from Route 8 take exit 15, at end of ramp, turn left onto Main
St. (Rte. 34). Continue West on Rte. 34 for about 1.5 miles. Then take a
right onto Lakeview Terrace (there is a road sign for Kellogg
Center/Osbornedale State Park at the corner). Continue to stop sign at the
end of the road; turn left at stop sign and immediately another left into
parking lot. Meet in parking lot.
The walk is open to the public.
