Peveto Woods Bird & Butterfly Sanctuary


Peveto Woods Bird & Butterfly Sanctuary is a critical amenity for our winged neo-tropical visitors. The first rest stop available on their journey from Central and South America, the birds spend essential time here at Peveto Woods, eating voraciously to fuel up for the next leg of their journey. In fact, researchers estimate that as many as two million tiny songbirds in need of rest, food and cover use this Sanctuary each year. Peveto Woods is also used by other winged creatures, namely thousands of Monarch butterflies on their long journey to winter in Mexico and other colorful flutterers such as Gulf fritillary, pearl crescents, red admirals, buckeyes, and an assortment of swallowtails including black, spicebush, tiger, zebra and pipevine. Needless to say, Peveto Woods is a true birders paradise!
