Help us with a late season butterfly survey up Mount Dickerman.  Data collected form this hike will help influence restoration efforts along the Mountain Loop Highway.  

This will be a strenuous hike.  Please make sure you are up for the grind.  While the hiking may be slow, and there will be breaks to search for butterflies, we want to make sure that everyone has the ability to make it up to the top and that we keep the group together.  

Bring a camera for all the photo opportunities that will present themselves!
