The Dragonfly Woman’s NMW event

The Dragonfly Woman tells the story of a rainy NMW event on her blog:

I hosted a public moth night for National Moth Week over the weekend.  I was really ready. I had enough lights, traps, and baits to have about 8 moth viewing stations spread across the grounds.  I had a good 50 people signed up to come, several of whom were planning to stay the full 8 hours, and four entomologists ready to teach people about moths and help with identifications.  I had a computer ready to go so we could start uploading photos to a citizen science website and even had coloring sheets for the kids in case they got bored.  I was so excited!

You know what they say about the best laid plans.    Read more
