Moth Night at PPA
TIME & PLACE: 8-10 pm; Pinelands Preservation Alliance, 17 Pemberton Road, Southampton, NJ 08088
Description: Join PPA, Elena Tartaglia from the Rutgers University Graduate Program in Ecology & Evolution, and PPA volunteer Matt Sichel for an evening of moth observation and education to celebrate National Moth Week. The mission of National Moth Week is to spread awareness about the ecology of moths as well as to have fun observing interesting and often overlooked nighttime biodiversity.
Activities: Participants will use a blacklight to attract moths and other nocturnal insects to a sheet, identify them and learn about the lives of some of these fascinating insects. A slide show lecture will also offer a glimpse into the amazing nocturnal world of these creatures. Visitors may come and go as they please during this time. Children are welcome!
