With Steve Hall, Landscape Ecologist

Dates: Thursday, July 28
Time: 9:00 – 10:30 p.m. ET
Fee: $9 ($8 Members)

Moths are among our most diverse, colorful, and ecologically important groups of organisms. Approximately 2,700 species occur in North Carolina, but most people only ever see just a few and are startled when they first see a Luna Moth or a Polyphemus Moth, never having suspected that there were such species flying around in the night. We may even come across a Sphinx Moth pollinating a night-blooming wildflower. Moth Night shines a light on this amazing group of organisms. We’ll use two common techniques to sample moth populations – blacklights and baiting – to take a look at the local fauna. Bring your cameras, with best results obtained using a flash.
