Karner Blue Butterfly Walks At the Old Gick Farm Trail

Join us at the Old Gick Farm trailhead off of Route 50 to look for and learn about a fascinating blue beauty... the endangered Karner Blue Butterfly.

The endangered Karner blue butterfly has two broods every summer. The first brood should emerge late in May and the next brood should emerge in early July. We will be looking for adults of the first brood that are searching for nectar and mates in the open pine/oak savannah meadows. The walk will be cancelled if it is raining. The walk last for about an hour. Please park in the lot by the Saratoga Sandplains Sign on Route 50 half a mile north of King Road. Registration is strongly encouraged.
