Field Trip: Aucilla Wildlife Management Area – Sunday, August 25, 2019
On Sunday, August 25, the Hairstreak Chapter will go to the Aucilla Wildlife Management Area, in southern Jefferson County, for the first time since 2011. This swampy 50,000-acre WMA is on the west side of the Aucilla River, and mostly on the north side of US 98. Specialties of the house include Juniper Hairstreak, Texan Crescent, Appalachian Brown, Lace-winged Roadside-Skipper, and a nice assortment of other small dark grass skippers (to keep things interesting).
We'll carpool from the St. Marks Trailhead parking lot on Woodville Hwy south of Capital Circle at 9 AM EDT. This is expected to be an all-day trip. Bring lunch, water, sun and biting insect protection, and binoculars. If you have questions email Eric Shaw at firstname.lastname@example.org. Submitted by David Harder
