Lagoon Park Walk – Focus on Butterfly Habitat


John and Mary Purdy met us at 10 am in order to share some of the Canandaigua Botanical Society history with Liz Witter of the Messenger Post Newspaper.

Attending the walk led by Bob Guthrie: Ray Boda, Marge and Dick Demallie, John and Marion Fladd, Maya Hobday, Peggy Kane, Leona Lauster, Sylvia Moore, Laura Ouimette with Bethan and Thomas, Dave Spier, Elizabeth Succi, Brenda Voorhees, Julie Warren. Messenger Post Photographer, Adrian Kraus, also joined us for the walk.

Bob Guthrie began the walk with an explanation that we would be looking at butterfly habitat with most everything we see being host plants. He strongly encouraged us to read beyond the photos in guide books because the photo is often not enough for correct identification. Leona Lauster and Maya Hobday kept species notes.
