This Saturday, April 29 is the Sandy Hook, Monmouth County, New Jersey field trip with our New Jersey NABA Chapter. Participants will meet 9:30am at the Horseshoe Cove Parking Lot [DeLorme 39, M-19] (Note Change in Meeting Place). Take Exit 117 off the Garden State Parkway, then Route 36 for about 13 miles to Sandy Hook. The Horseshoe Cove Parking Lot is on the right about 3 miles N of the entrance to the Hook. Stay in the left hand lane as you pass the right hand turnoff for Atlantic Drive (signified by All Beach Parking sign). Then exit right is just north of this right hand turnoff. There are restroom facilities next to Parking Lots B, C, D and E on the right hand side after you pass the entrance to the Hook. Hoped for species include Henry’s Elfin, Juniper Hairstreak, and Gray Hairstreak. Leader: Jim Springer
