Marie Poteat’s Property – Guilford County, NC
June 22 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
The field trip to this private property in Jamestown was originally scheduled for June 1, 2019.
Join us this coming Saturday, June 22, at 10:00 am for our CBS Triad Chapter field trip to Marie Poteat’s property in Jamestown, NC. The address is 1111 Bales Chapel Rd., Jamestown, NC 27282. Pull in through the gate and park in front of the old house. Please arrive early to get parked properly.
If you look at the emails you receive on Triad butterfly activities, you have seen many beautiful photos of butterflies on Marie’s property. This is our opportunity to see some of those butterflies in person. Marie has spent many years restoring native plants on her family property while eliminating invasive species. For those interested in Monarch butterflies, she has more than 25 species of the milkweed host plants. This hard work has paid off. She probably has more butterfly species visiting and breeding on her property than any other location in Guilford County.
In planning for your morning outing in Jamestown, you should be aware that there are NO restroom facilities available. Be sure to make a “pit stop” somewhere in Jamestown before continuing to the property. Bring your own water to drink, and dress for summer weather, including using tick protection.
Marie would like to have some idea of how many people she should plan to accommodate. Consequently, please contact her by early Friday evening to let her know that you’re planning to come and for last minute instructions. Keep in mind that this is a large property. If you don’t let her know you’re coming or you arrive late, the group may be elsewhere on the property when you get there.
Coordinator: Marie Poteat <firstname.lastname@example.org> Please contact Marie if you plan to attend.
