October is marked as a peak month as most the butterfly diversity could be seen during this month. More than caterpillars, the adults are seen more fleeting around. Tiger butterflies are most common ones to be seen, this also time when the pansies make their appearances.
Post-monsoon is best time for wildflowers to sprout on open plateaus and grasslands. This season marks with surge of bell-shaped glories. This also marks end of the monsoon season and the flowers will be gone by this month end.
The birds are more heard than seen during this season. As they prepare for the nesting season, a good amount of activity could be seen in any wooded areas. Ashy Prinias, Rufous backed shrikes, Indian robins and bulbuls dominate the scene.
We conduct full day and half day nature walks in the nearby wilderness areas of any given location in India. We also conduct walks within city parks and gardens where we promote garden education among schools and colleges. Currently we are offering nature trails in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane and Bengaluru. We also offer online courses and carry out projects that help environment.
