Dallas County Lepidopterists' Society
CALENDAR OF EVENTS
For 2018


Membership in the Dallas County Lepidopterists' Society is free!
Meetings are held in the winter months at theTexas Discovery Gardens at Fair Park; spring, summer and fall we are "in the field" visiting various locations in north Texas to observe, collect and photograph butterflies and moths.
The DCLS Calendar of Events covers all scheduled meetings and field trips as well as other "butterfly happenings" in the area. Field trips are dependent on the weather, so if it looks questionable, be sure to check the website and your email the day of the meeting in case of cancellation!

DALLAS COUNTY LEPIDOPTERISTS' SOCIETY MEETING: 10:00 a.m. - 12:00

Location: 1127 Stacks Road, Ennis, TX 75119.

Topic: Field Trip

We will meet at Master Naturalist John Wilt's 100+ acre property in eastern Ellis County. The property consists of prairie, meadow, and wooded bottomland and should yield a variety of butterfly species, including Eastern Tiger Swallowtails, Eastern Black Swallowtails, Queens, Common Buckeye, various grass skippers, and hopefully some of our specialty hairstreak species that are only on the wing for a couple of weeks.

DIRECTIONS: The address is: 1127 Stacks Road, Ennis, TX 75119. Take I-45 south. Exit at #266, FM 660. Continue down exit road to second stop sign. Turn left onto FM 660 South. Continue on FM 660 for 8 miles. Town of Bristol sign will appear. Next is a funny intersection. FM 660 makes a 90 degree right turn - no stop sign. Stacks Road will be the left turn at the strange funny intersection. About 2 miles after that left turn is 1127 Stacks Road on the left. The gate will be open and just park on the grass. ((Look for my white pickup with the butterfly net sticking up.)) You can also click on this link for Google map.

Bring some water and insect repellant. I'll have a "sulphur sock" for people to use to help ward off chiggers. Bring your camer, binocs, or net and let's go see what's on the wing!

As always, attendance to all DCLS meetings is free of charge and open to everyone.

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus).
