Leonard's Skipper monitoring at 4 sites in the park and one nearby. Two of the sites appeared well pre-peak for Rough Blazingstar flowers and Leonard's Skippers. 23 of the 30 (9 males, 4 females, 17 unknown) Leonard's Skippers were in a site called Dan's Triangle that we began surveying in May 2018. This spot was recommended to us by Dan Sonnenberg, who found it using aerial imagery.
