John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary
THE SECRET NIGHT LIFE OF MOTHS JOHN BURROUGHS NATURE SANCTUARY
Saturday, July 24, in the Evening. Cabin open for tours Noon-4:00 pm
Regionally acclaimed entomologist Matthew Rymkiewicz will be our guide on the Pond House lawn for this nighttime event to discover evening moths and to celebrate National Moth Week. A close look at the night life of moths is sure to make fans of these under-sung cousins of attention-grabbing butterflies. Important in the ecosystem in their own right, moths play a critical role as evening pollinators of night-blooming flowers and as nutrition for many larger creatures.
Bring a snack/dessert/bottle of wine to share, and a chair if you wish, and have as much fun as the moths that will be attracted by the light of our pop-up Moth Theater and their own special nectar snack.
Space is limited. Advance registration is required to get the time and place to meet and for parking access. Sign up at firstname.lastname@example.org
Slabsides will be open for tours earlier in the day, from Noon until 4:00 pm.
