Trip Report: Jennings Prairie: July 29, 2013

It started as a cool, sunny day in the mid-60’s, probably the first time we hiked the prairie and didn’t have to worry about sunstroke!  We found 73 species of wildflower species in bloom, and 19 species of butterflies.  Two new species for our master list were pinesap and featherfleece.  We found the Small Flowered Purple Fringed orchis, but in lesser numbers than the previous year.
