The Bay Area Checkerspot only lives 10 days: it hatches (from chrysalis in the ground), eats, mates, lays eggs & dies.

This year they, AND the wildflowers, are VERY early: normally, they would peak in April, but *they are peaking NOW: in a week or so they will be GONE*.

The Kirby Canyon Landfill Conservation Trust funds and oversees activities related to conservation of the Bay checkerspot butterfly. The wildlife team fenced off 250 acres of prime butterfly habitat (The Kirby Canyon Butterfly Preserve) and placed grazing restrictions on the area to protect the plant community the butterfly depends on for food, protection, and reproduction. The Trust is involved in monitoring the Bay checkerspot butterfly habitat, its population, and the planting of rare or native plant food sources. To encourage the spread of Bay checkerspot butterflies throughout Coyote Valley, Kirby Canyon Landfill, in cooperation with the Creekside Center for Earth Observation, provided 4,000 larvae for translocation to a nearby Mateo County habitat. In early 2013, 10,000 larvae were introduced on two sites, Tulare Hill in Santa Clara Count and Edgewood Park. Increases in the Bay checkerspot butterfly population have been observed, which is wonderful news for this avid program.
