The day was cool, mostly cloudy and windy with temps in the 50’s and 60’s, but the group was still hoping to see the Brown Elfin. Unfortunately that did not happen. Very few butterflies were found as they searched from 12:00-3:30. Dave Kastner was our leader. In attendance were Alison Smith, Alice Clark, John Demko and James Wilson.
