June 22 Nature Survey

This week, a group of our dedicated volunteers took a hike on our land near the old Pine Creek Trail to do a survey of some of the diverse flora and fauna at the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area. Summer has arrived, meaning that our volunteers were able to spot some beautiful flowers, some purple round-leafed orchid and some little white one-flowered wintergreen (pictured below). Volunteers were also able to see quite a few species of birds and insects, including the tiger swallowtail butterfly, whitetail deer and mountain bluebird!

Special thanks to Peggy & Chris Mills, Linda & Mal Blasetti, Ing-Britt Renborg and Bev Lane for your detailed nature survey, we hope you enjoy hiking at ASCCA all year long!
