Just wanted to report that after doing our 6th annual Adopt-A-Road clean-up on the full length (9.5 km) of Cty. Rd. #35 (Old Keene Road), from Hwy #7 to Cty. Rd. #2 this morning, I had crews reporting large numbers (dozens in various spots) of dead butterflies (Red Admirals) on the shoulders of the road. Not surprising given the numbers around these days, but interesting just the same.

Location: County Road 35 (Old Keene Road)
Observer: Rick Stankiewicz
