Bill Parker is “just an old retired guy (ceramic engineer – not a biologist) who considers himself a student of natural history.” Bill volunteers at the Dungeness River Audubon Center and the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge and has run some moth programs at the nature center and at Sequim Bay State Park to encourage kids and adults to discover the beauty of moths and learn about their place in our environment. This year Bill scheduled the events so they could be registered as part of National Moth Week.

John Himmelman’s book, Discovering Moths: Nighttime Jewels in Your Own Backyard, has been Bill’s “textbook” and inspiration for these outings.
