You may recall that in 2012 49 states participated in NMW. Do you remember what the missing state was?
Today, we are super-pleased to announce that 2013’s NMW will include events in North Dakota!
Folks, this is a big get for us. Dr. Carl Barrentine of Grand Forks, ND is more than making up for last year with a full month of moth-related activities – everything from moth art to informative presentations, and of course, blacklighting will be included in Carl’s Moth Month agenda. The Grand Forks Public Library will host a moth art exhibit from July 8 – 28 and Turtle River State Park will hold three blacklighting events.
What’s more, Carl has his own YouTube channel for nature videos complete with a 25-part (!) series on ND moth identification. Here’s one of his videos detailing the early spring moths of northeastern North Dakota:
We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Carl and Dakota Naturalist as a 2013 NMW supporter!
That leaves just 18 more states until we’ve got a full count for the USA. Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming – Where are you guys?! If you’re reading this and you live in one of these states, please help us out! Register an event today!
