Butterflies of Cherokee Marsh

  • Cherokee Marsh, North Unit 6098 North Sherman Avenue Madison, WI, 53704 United States (map)

We will observe a variety of butterflies as they take nectar from wildflowers, and learn about their identification, behavior, and lifestyle. Bring binoculars if you have them—close-focusing ones work best; we will have a few extras available. Long pants and a hat are recommended. This trip is co-sponsored by the Southern Wisconsin Butterfly Association and Friends of Cherokee Marsh.

Hosted during National Pollinator Week!
