2018 Marin County Butterfly Count Sunday June 3

The Marin Count will be Sunday, June 3 this year. We will meet at Doc Edgar Park in Fairfax (junction of Cascade Ave and Bolinas Ave) at 9:30 AM. One group will head into Cascade Canyon and one group will head to Azalea Hill to try for the Lindsey’s skippers. We’ll meet at the Marty Griffon Preserve (aka Audubon Canyon Ranch) in Volunteer Canyon for lunch around 12:30 and count there, then head over to Ring Mt. We enter Ring Mt Open Space from Westward (which is a right off Paradise Dr in Corte Madera). We usually get there around 4 and spend 1-2 hours. Please email if you can come.

Bring your close focus binoculars, lunch and liquids.  A camera is helpful, net if you have one. Coordinator will have extra nets. Participants are asked to contribute $3 to NABA. NOTE: There is no collecting on this count.
