Join us for a trip up Reecer Canyon north of Ellensburg to see one of the most prolific areas for butterflies in Washington.  Although the record for this area is 70 butterfly species, we expect to see 35 to 40 species today.
We will also see more than 50 species of shrub-steppe wildflowers as we drive up Reecer Creek Road and about 30 more wildflower species in the vicinity of the springs and meadow near Lion Rock.
 
Bring a butterfly book, native plant book, close-up binoculars (if you have them), camera, lunch, snacks, sun protection, and lots of water.  No facilities.  Plan to be back by early evening.

 
Meet before 8:00 a.m. at north (small) end of the Issaquah P&R (I-90 exit 15, corner of SR 900 and Newport Way) to carpool.  Please contact Sunny Walter if you are planning to join us, 425-271-1346 or sunny@sunnywalter.com.  Passenger cost/person $20.
