Weymouth Woods NABA Butterfly Count

June 7 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

Weymouth Woods State Park

Meet up will be at the Visitor’s Center in the morning. This location offers a pleasant walk through stands of pine forests.

Pathways are packed sand. Wearing sturdy walking or hiking shoes is recommended along with long sleeves and pants as we will go off trail in some locations to look for as many butterfly species as possible. It is recommended you use a good bug spray, wear sunscreen, and carry water with you. Be sure to bring with you those items you may need to have a pleasant experience.

It is recommended you bring a packed lunch and snacks with plenty of water.

The Visitor’s Center has public restrooms and a water fountain. The nearest towns of Aberdeen and Southern Pines have many restaurants and other accommodations.

Target species for this count are the King’s and Edward’s Hairstreaks. Additional species commonly seen are Palamedes, Spicebush, and Tiger Swallowtails; Common Buckeyes, Eastern Tailed Blues and Azures, and assorted duskywings.
