Allow me to share this invitation with TILS and Leps-L members, and 
Entomo-L members with the assurance that if you get this two or three 
times, that's how much we want you to join us.
Tom Emmel tells us that we will see Miami Blue butterflies on this 
expedition. Benji Brumberg, Ombudsman for Florida's Department of 
Environmental Protection, has gathered all forces behind a common 
banner, under Tom, and we have united to create a restoration project 
designed to put the Miami Blue (Cyclargus thomasi bethunebakeri) back in 
its historical habitat (half of Florida, for Heaveh's sake) and create 
habitat for other rare and endangered butterflies.
Y'all come.
