The second Middle Tennessee NABA field trip is on May 30; please check the 
announcement below and note that participation is limited to 20 people.  

Thank you,

Saturday, May 30, 1:00 - 4:00 PM - Sellars Farm State Archaeological Area 
Butterfly/Dragonfly Field Trip. Meet at 1:00 PM at the Sellars Farm parking lot.
Field Trip leaders: Richard Connors & Rita Venable 

This is the site of a fortified prehistoric Native American village of the 
Mississippian Cultural Period occupied from 1000 AD to 1300 AD. It has been 
found to be a good fall butterflying area, yielding 21 species in less than two 
hours. Hopefully, it will prove to be an excellent spring butterfly sight as 
well. It is also a significant dragonfly area.

Parking is available onsite. On site facilities include port-o-johns but no 
drinking water. Please wear comfortable walking shoes. There will be moderate 
walking in old fields and along the river. Binoculars and field guides are 
useful. A walking stick might be handy.

Participation is limited to 20 people, and registration is required by May 27.
