Events: Field Trip at Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park with NABA Hairstreak – Florida

Field Trip: Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park – Saturday, April 29, 2017

Please join us for this half-day field trip to Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park, one of the best local spots for seeing a wide variety of butterfly. The park is located in north Tallahassee. Some of the butterflies we hope to see include several species of swallowtails, Banded Hairstreak, Little Wood Satyr, Hoary Edge, Zabulon Skipper, and, of course, the Golden Banded-Skipper. Phipps Park remains one of the best and easiest places to see this rare skipper in the eastern U.S.

We will meet at 9:00 AM at Gate B. Turn west (left if you’re coming from downtown Tallahassee) on Miller Landing Road from Meridian Road. Go 1.2 miles and you will come to Gate B. We expect to walk between one and two miles. Please bring water and close-focusing binoculars if you have them. This field trip will end at noon and is suitable for families. Please contact Dave McElveen at d.mcelveen@comcast.net or (850) 841-0899 if you have any questions.
