Audrey Carroll Sanctuary
9-11 a.m.

Mid July is a time when the breeding bird activity at our sanctuaries is beginning to die down as the summer heats up. But while the birds may be slowing down, the butterflies will be cranking up. Many of our wildflowers will be in full bloom and the butterflies and other pollinators will be taking full advantage of the buffet. We will walk some of the field and forest trails in search of some of our daintier winged creatures at the Audrey Carroll Sanctuary, including swallowtails, fritillaries, sulphurs, blues, and the smaller skippers. We should also be able to find some monarch butterflies, including caterpillars on our milkweed plants.

Please join us for this casual nature walk that will be well suited for families with children. Meet at 9 a.m. at the entry gate to the sanctuary at 13030 Old Annapolis Road (just east of Detrick Road) in Mt. Airy.

No rest room facilities are available, and the walk will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather. For further information contact David Smith at or 410-549-7082.

A Youth Conservation Award and gift certificate were awarded to Marcus in recognition of his valuable contributions to the ASCM chapter.  Marcus has been an integral force in the success of the purple martin colonies at our two sanctuaries. 


The award was signed by the officers of National Audubon.


Congratulations, Marcus!
