Location: Bauer-Brockway Barrens SNA
Surveyed primarily along North Brockway service road (44.31749, -90.741182) and forest land north of Bauer Rd starting at the Bauer-Brockway Barrens project area sign (44.298493, -90.748186). Both Hoary Elfins were found in the latter location. Also carefully looked at patches of birdsfoot violet in areas to the west and south of the main parking area with hopes of finding a Cobweb Skipper, but none were found. We did not notice many lupine plants in that area, and none were flowering. Butterfly activity significantly decreased by the afternoon due to winds and overcast conditions. Also observed Northern Barrens and Oblique-lined Tiger Beetles.
