Events: Georgia-Piedmont Chapter Outing April 8th

On Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at the Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge, we look forward to a Spring outing led by Rose Payne. We hope to sight Zebra swallowtails that make their home in this area. Today, through the efforts of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the 35,000 acre wildlife refuge hosts loblolly pines on the ridges with hardwoods found along creek bottoms an in scattered upland coves. Clear streams and beaver ponds provide ideal wetlands for migrating waterfowl. Wildlife populations have been restored, many in greater numbers than when settlers first arrived. Piedmont National Wildilfe Refuge now serves as a model forest ecosystem management for wildlife.

We want to extend a warm welcome to all of our members, both new and renewing as well as our friends, supporters and fellow butterfly enthusiasts.
