Join us for an early morning install of a kiosk sign on the Lower Bristlecone Trail! The Friends team is hard at work designing interpretive kiosks for the US Forest Service in the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area. A few weeks ago, we installed a kiosk dedicated to alerting recreationists about the Acastus Checkerspot butterfly (pictured above). On Wednesday, July 24, it is the Mount Charleston Blue Butterfly's turn!
We'll spend the morning installing a kiosk sign alerting recreationists about what they can do to protect the Mount Charleston Blue Butterfly and their habitat. The Mount Charleston Blue Butterfly is an endangered species endemic to the Spring Mountains. Endemic means found no where else on earth! We will meet at the Lower Bristlecone trailhead at 7a and travel by vehicle up the trail. From the furthermost point we can reach in the truck, we will continue on foot with the kiosk and installation supplies. There's no experience necessary to join us, just a passion for the outdoors!
What You'll Need: Sturdy, closed-toe shoes, long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt. Sunscreen, a water bottle, and snacks for yourself.
See you there!
