Moths are not only tremendously beneficial pollinators, but also come in an impressive array of colors, patterns, shapes, and sizes. Some moths are as colorful and elegant as butterflies, and others have truly impressive camouflage abilities. Some moths are giant, and as large as a person’s hand! There are many beautiful moths that might be right outside your home, that you may have never realized were there due to their elusive nature and nocturnal activity. Following a slide show presentation, we will take a nighttime walk to search for moths, listen to the many other late summer insects of our area such as Katydids and watch for other nocturnal creatures such as bats flying over our heads! This IN-PERSON program has a limited capacity of 40 people. Masks are encouraged to be worn during the indoor portion and are optional outdoors. Tickets MUST be purchased in advance. There will be no ticket sales at the door the day of the program. Recommended for ages 6 and up. Please register for the quantity of ALL members in your party. The rate for children and adults is the same. Upon arrival please check in at the front desk and proceed to Kiernan Hall where a slide show will take place. For questions, please call or email Ryan MacLean at [email protected]
