Moth Night at WVU Core Arboretum
National Moth Week is July 23-31, and WVU Core Arboretum is celebrating by inviting everyone to a Moth Night at the Arboretum! Tuesday, July 26, from 9:00-11:00 pm we will have sheets and lights set up in the Arboretum lawn area to attract moths, and there will be experts on hand to identify the moths that we attract! Last year, we saw over 95 species of moths and numerous other insects.
We will also have people from the WVU Insect Zoo at the event with some of their displays and live insects. There is not a formal program for this free event, and all are welcome to stop by any time between 9 and 11 to learn about moths and how to attract and study them. Bring a flashlight. The event will be cancelled if it is raining. Due to rainy weather on July 26, this event was rescheduled for August 4.
