Celebrate National Moth Week by exploring the night in search of moths. Moths make up 90 percent of the butterfly family, yet most of us can only identify one or two of them. Join a naturalist to discover what makes moths special and why we should celebrate this group of insects. Learn the different groups of moths and then take a night hike, sharing UV flashlights as we search for hidden insects glowing along the trail. Finally, we will check out our “research center” to see if we attracted any winged visitors.
