Pierre Howard's Butterflies of Georgia
by Carla on March 13th, 2020

Preserving important habitats is essential for protecting healthy populations of butterflies and
moths. Pierre Howard has documented several species of butterfly on granite outcrops in the
state of Georgia, including on ORLT-protected properties, such as Ogletree and Tigner Road. On the outcrop on Ogletree, Pierre observed the Juniper Hairstreak (Callophrys gryneu) and Yucca Giant-Skipper (Megathymus yuccae).

Pierre is ardent: “I wish we could make people understand how valuable your conservation work is. Saving these granite outcrops saves so many species!”
