     Sunday, August 3, 2003, the Second Annual Elizabethton Butterfly Count 
will be held, meeting at 9 am at the Visitor's Center of Sycamore Shoals State 
Historic Area in Elizabethton, TN.  We will cover the Park and surrounding 
area in the morning, breaking for lunch, and meeting new arrivals during the 
lunch hour at the Sycamore Shoals Visitor Center.  At around 1 pm we will 
carpool 
to Holston Mountain, stopping at various sites as we drive up Panhandle Road 
to the top.  If there are enough participants, we may break into smaller groups 
to cover other areas.
     Lowland habitats include woodland, riparian zone, and open weedy fields 
around Sycamore Shoals, promising a good variety of butterflies.  Holston 
Mountain offers pastureland at the bottom and various woodland types with 
occasional powerline clearings as we ascend the mountain.  This has been a good 
place 
to see Diana Fritillaries (and some beautiful wildflower displays).
     If anyone from the area is interested in counting in other places 
nearby, our count circle is nearly the same as that used on the Elizabethton 
Christmas Bird Count.  Call me if you want to count somewhere different than 
the main 
group, or if you want to be a "garden watcher" who counts only in their own 
backyard.
