Join Tampa Bay Butterfly Foundation and NABA Tampa Bay on a butterfly walk to continue our monthly monitoring of butterfly species at Violet Cury Preserve in Lutz at 1802 Sinclair Hills Road.
Plan for the outdoors, heat, mosquitoes, no-see-ums, getting feet wet if you don’t wear the right shoes to avoid it. Bring plenty of water to drink.
Species that could be seen include Cloudless sulphur, Orange-barred sulphur, White peacock, Zebra longwing, viceroy, Statira sulphur, Dainty sulphur, Common buckeye, Mangrove buckeye, Fiery skipper, Gulf fritillary, Phaon crescent, Cassius blue, Ceraunus blue, Monarch, Common white checkered skipper, Tropical white checkered skipper, and more. This is a new location that may be part of the North American Butterfly Association count circles for Tampa Bay.
Come join us to help monitoring populations of butterflies in this beautiful park. This will be free for NABA members; only $5 for non-NABA members. Please bring payment morning of event.
