Join the Massachusetts Butterfly Club to look for these beautiful bugs at the Frances A. Crane Wildlife Management Area in Falmouth! All field trips are open to anyone interested in learning about butterflies. On these field trips participants strive to look for butterflies without harming them. Butterfliers also socialize and have fun, and along the way, raise public awareness about butterflies. During this trip, participants will be targeting Leonard’s Skipper and possible Variegated Fritillary.

Please call ahead to confirm date, get directions to meeting place and rain date plans, and to let the coordinator know to expect you. Wear comfortable clothing and sturdy walking shoes. Bring binoculars, hand lens, field guide(s), sunscreen, water, hat, insect repellant, allergy medicines, snacks and/or lunch, pen/pencil & small pad for recording, and camera. Netting is not allowed. In case of inclement weather, check the “MassLep” Google Group the night before for postponement or rain date.
