Come join one of our dedicated volunteers to explore the beauty of the preserve in early May. We will be meeting at the Kitty Todd Office to start the hike from there. Several species of birds that nest at Kitty Todd have been making their appearance this spring - Eastern Towhees, Eastern Bluebirds, Lark Sparrows, Field Sparrows, Eastern Phoebes, and Red-headed Woodpeckers to name a few. The plants are a little behind this year. We will probably see some lupine plants, but unfortunately they will not be in bloom yet. The frosted elfin butterfly in the picture is one of the specialty butterflies the preserve is known for and hopefully we will have a chance to see one. We will be enjoying whatever beauty nature shares with us on our hike! The hike will be easy. Often the preserve is wet in places during the spring so boots would be recommended.
