Location: Barrens between Millston and Black River Falls
Jackson County

8.25 hours. We also saw 1 unidentified blue and 203 unidentified duskywings. Most sites have past Frosted Elfin records and are sites in our long-term monitoring for Frosted or other elfins. We also chose some sites to survey especially for Cobweb Skippers. Sites were Dike 17, North Brockway East, Cemetery Road near Lichtner (or Seils Road), Bauer-Brockway Complex, Stanton Road, and west of Hunter Haven Road. Frosted Elfins were found in 9 different units, including 2 within 1/2 mile west of Brockway Road 2 along Stanton Road and the pipeline ROW next to it, and 5 west of Hunter Haven. Most of the Henry's Elfins were within 1/2 mile west and 1/2 mile south of the Bauer Road/Brockway Road junction.
