Wings Over Dayton

“Same Time, Same Place, 2022!” We have postponed the Summer Study Weekend in the Blue Mountains until 2022 when we believe our members will feel more comfortable gathering, carpooling and sharing. 

The board is most excited about our upcoming Summer Butterfly Study Weekend. After many years we are going back to the Blue Mountains. The study weekend will be in July on a Friday through Sunday. We will have supplemental field trips on Monday. Exact dates will be announced next Spring. We will be based out of Dayton and thanks to the amazing focus and energy from Board Members Mary and Lora we have a meeting location established and are in final negotiations with caterers. Mary and Lora were key organizers of last year’s Study Weekend and we know what a great job they did then. More details to follow but please mark your calendar. Grabbing a hotel reservation sooner rather than later is probably a good idea also.
