Summer 2017 Outing:
Join us at the Navarino State Wildlife Area (Shawano County) on Saturday, June 17 for a day (and night) of insect exploration and good company. Navarino State Wildlife Area is located in Shawano County about 40 minutes north of Appleton, WI. The area features a wide range of habitats from dry oak-pine woodlands and sand blows to extensive wetlands, and mid-June we would expect a wealth of interesting insects and other wildlife. We will set up UV/MV lights and baits on Saturday night, and those interesting in camping may do so on site (let Kyle know as he will handle the special use permit). The nearest motels are located in Clintonville, Shawano, and New London.
We will initially meet at 9 AM in one of the parking areas on County Highway K 1.6 miles north of the junction with Highway WI-156 (44.65679°N 88.58124°W) and reconvene in the area late evening to set up for blacklighting. We will order pizza and wings for pick-up and bring to the site for lunch/dinner.
We may blacklight on Friday night as well, and have Sunday as an alternate day in case of poor weather. More details to come as the event gets closer, but be sure to mark your calendars now!
