Blazing Star (Liatris spicata) is the star of the Deer Trail  this time of year.  The tall spikes of lavender hue attract swallowtails and other butterflies that drink the nectar to their content.  Praying Mantis and Green lynx spiders hide amongst the blooms and catch unsuspecting butterflies.  All this only a short hike from the office parking lot along the first 100 feet of the mile long trail.  Don’t forget the camera for terrific butterfly photo ops and selfies.

Participants must register to attend!
