Nature Conservancy to celebrate National Moth Week, Francis Carter Preserve in Charlestown (July 27)

The Nature Conservancy will host a special event on Friday at the Francis Carter Preserve in Charlestown, in celebration of the first annual National Moth Week. The event is cosponsored by the Rhode Island Natural History Survey. Participants are encouraged to bring a flashlight, camera and folding chair. Rain will cancel the event.
