BUTTERFLIES …2 hrs and 53 species!!

New Frontera members and naturalists, Buck and Linda Cooper, on a 6 week foray from Central Florida spent a quick two hours at Frontera and spotted 53 butterfly species.  Most notable for them, the Dina Yellow (Pryisitia dina), their first in the Valley in 10 years of visits.  It’s a pleasure to welcome visitors who are knowledgeable and willing to share information with others, and the Coopers have offered their time to lead nature walks in the park while they’re here.
