Chapters: Florida-TAL Field Trip 3/5 Montezuma Bluffs

Montezuma Bluffs Field Trip – Sunday, March 5, 2017

The NABA-Hairstreak chapter will be exploring the Bluffs and looking for the target species, the Falcate Orangetip. Other species that will be on the target species list will include Mourning Cloak and Eastern Comma.

To carpool, meet at 7:00 a.m. SHARP at the Village Square Blvd shopping area, at the eastern end near Newks Restaurant. We will take a short driving break at the home of Hairstreak Chapter members Sonny and Ginger Pinckard, who live just south of Americus, GA. We expect to arrive there around 9:30 AM. It’s just a short 30 to 45-minute drive to Montezuma Bluffs from their house.

If you would rather meet us at Montezuma Bluffs (Montezuma Bluffs Wildlife Management Area, Crooks Landing Road, off GA 49 North, Montezuma, GA 31063) we expect to muster and start the Field Trip from there at 10:30 a.m. Be at the parking lot at 10:30 a.m. Take SR 49, 2.3 miles north from the town of Montezuma to Crooks Landing Road. The entrance will be on your left.

Be sure to bring close-focusing binoculars, water, and a lunch. For more information about Montezuma Bluffs: http://www.exploregeorgia.org/listing/3224-montezuma-bluffs-wildlife-management-area.
