Re: Tucson leps - Pima Canyon 3/21

Mary Klinkel

Hi Peter,  thank you so much for this list!!  Are you available to help with the Spring Sabino Canyon/Santa Catalina Mts butterfly count to be held Friday 4/3/20?  I would love to have your help, I'm currently organizing the count with solos or small groups of people who are already in contact with each other.  There will be no public meeting time/place, and no compilation dinner.  I'll cover the NABA cost for the group.  All tallies will be sent to me by email, and I'll share it with participants & this group.  Let me know if you're available, thanks!  Mary Klinkel compiler
