Marin County Parks
Cascade Canyon Preserve. Meet at the gate at the end of Cascade Dr.
Tuesday, June 25, 2019, 10am – 1pm


This walk is for ages 18 and up. This preserve is a great spot to see a variety of butterflies: Blues, swallowtails, admirals, sisters, buckeyes, checkerspots, crescents, and many more. We’ll take the time to observe them as they go about their business of finding nectar, attracting mates, detecting the proper plants to lay eggs on, and engaging in a practice called “puddling”. If you’re not sure what “puddling” is, you’ll have to join us to see. Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them.

High fire danger cancels: Call (415) 893-9527 after 8am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.

No registration is required.

Questions: Contact Shannon Burke at or (415) 893-9520.
