Don’t forget to join us for Moth Night tomorrow (July 28) at DeKorte Park from 8:30 to 10 pm. The free event was rescheduled from Monday due to the bad weather.

The program starts with a talk by National Moth Week co-founder Dr. Elena Tartaglia on these spectacular yet misunderstood cousins of butterflies.

Then it’s out to the park where industrial-strength lamps and white sheets will be set up and┬ásugar bait will be used to attract moths for easier viewing. The event is┬ápart of National Moth Week. For more information, including some astounding facts and figures, click here
