The new Peterson Guide to Moth – Book tour schedule

Seabrooke Leckie, co-author of the “New Peterson Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America“, and a sponsor of National Moth Week,  will present this newest title in the Peterson Field Guide Series in a series of presentations during an upcoming book tour.
