Location: Allen Creek wetlands south of Fort Atkinson
Adams County

Beautiful cool morning. Checking on some restoration work next to wet brushy areas. Walked back through a bit of prairie and wet meadow. Found the American Snout in the gravel driveway. Also saw a lot of Lyre-tipped spreadwing damselflies, Eastern Forktails, Calico and Halloween Pennant dragonflies. Showy Tick Trefoil, Purple Milkwort, Joe Pye weed, Swamp Milkweed and Allegheny Monkey Flower led the botanical pagent of purple today.
