Reminder: Saturday June 30 Field Trip to Red Top Lookout

June 30 – Red Top Lookout, Teanaway area – Difficulty Level  2-3

To sign up, contact Maureen Traxler:

We will make a few stops where we may see the Common Alpine, W. Meadow Fritillaries, and Greenish Blues, to name a few, on our way up to the parking lot.  It is a 3/4 mile walk up to the lookout itself with one short, but quite steep section.  However, there are nice areas beyond the parking with buckwheat and other nectar sources for those not wanting to go to the top. We have seen fritillaries, blues, swallowtails, sulphurs and coppers here. The view from the lookout is spectacular at 5,360 ft., and there are some nice nectar meadows just below it with coppers, blues, hairstreaks, fritillaries and swallowtails.  Of course, there may be very little on our day, fingers crossed.
