Blue Weekend

Warblers are good- but State Listed, Federally Endangered butterflies- are way cooler!!!
Behold: the Karner Blue butterfly.

When you come up to Magee, nearby Kitty Todd is the place for the "Butterfly of butterflies!"

Schedule your trip to Kitty Todd on May 15 or 16 for Blue Weekend, for the annual celebration of all things blue in the oak savanna, including the Karner blue butterfly, wild blue lupine and the blue spotted salamander. Hikes, presentations, photo exhibits and more are all part of this family-friendly weekend at Kitty Todd Preserve and surrounding protected areas in Northwest Ohio.

No promises on the Karners, but the amesome Frosted Elfins should still be out. And for you leps who bird watch in the off season, lark sparrows are sure to be seen. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me: harner1@bright.net and I will get you to the right people!
