Moth Night at WVU Core Arboretum

moth nightWVU Core Arboretum is excited to announce Moth Night, Part 2! Thursday, August 31, from 8:30-11:00 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! At previous Moth Night events, we have seen 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 8:30 and 11 to learn about moths and how to attract and study them. Bring a flashlight. The event will be rescheduled if it is raining. This event is a special collaboration with Dr. Elizabeth Rowen's Principles of Entomology (ENTO 404) class at WVU.
