Butterflies In The UC-Berkeley Botanical Garden 4/24/18

Yesterday I went on a very enjoyable butterfly walk at the UC- Berkeley Botanical Garden. We found seven different butterfly species.

Pipevine Swallowtail
Common Checkered Skipper
Field Crescent
Mournful Duskywing
Northern Checkerspot
Red Admiral
Pale Swallowtail

It is a good time to visit the garden. Many flowers are in bloom, birds are active and the butterflies will only increase over the next months.

There are free monthly Butterfly Walks  with admission at the garden from  April 24 – October 23, 2018  on the fourth Tuesday of the month every month from 3-4 p.m.with  Sally Levinson, ‘caterpillar lady’, and Sarab Seth, ‘butterfly guy,’ for a guided walk through the Botanical Garden in search of butterflies.
