Our Meadowlands Moth Night won't be until Wednesday, July 25, but we thought you might want a preview with moth expert Seabrooke Leckie, co-author of the new Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America (This links to her website's info on the book).
Moth Night with Seabrooke Leckie, sponsored by the Friends of the East Brunswick Environmenatl Commission and National Moth Week, is Thursday, May 10, 8 – 11 p.m., at Cultural Arts Center, 721 Cranbury Road, East Brunswick.
More about Seabrooke Leckie follows.
This from her bio:
Seabrooke Leckie is a freelance biologist and writer living in rural eastern Ontario. She holds aB.Sc.H. in Zoology and has worked on field research contracts in many parts of the continent, from California to Québec, British Columbia to Ohio, as well as her home province of Ontario.
She discovered moths quite by accident one summer while away on contract, and they've since become her No. 1 passion. Birds are her second interest; she is a federally licensed bird bander and volunteers each summer with a local bird research organization.
She's not only the author that new moth guide, the co-author of the new and has been involved with other publications such as the Ontario Breeding Bird Atlas and the newsletter of the Ontario Field Ornithologists.
Most afternoons you can find her outdoors, peering closely at flora and fauna, camera in hand; nights, of course, are spent at her moth sheet. She blogs her discoveries at her website, seabrookeleckie.com
