May Butterfly Walk Cancelled
Message from Gordon Hart
Because of the BC Public Health Officer’s ongoing efforts to stop the spread of Covid-19 and its variants, I have cancelled the May Butterfly Walk scheduled for Sunday, May 2. Hiking outside is still encouraged, so please get out and enjoy the spring weather and look for butterflies. I have not finished compiling our recent April count, but at least eight species were found.
I hope next month will bring better news,

and one Dunno – later identified by Libby Avis as Egira curialis
