Moth at the Meadowlands, New Jersey, USA

Learn all about moths — those amazing cousins of butterflies — at the Meadowlands’ third annual Moth Night at DeKorte Park from 8:30 to 11 p.m. And it’s FREE.

We’ll be hosting the folks from National Moth Week, who’ll present a short talk on moths and why they are so awesome yet misunderstood.

Then we’ll check out the NMW’s industrial-strength mercury vapor lamps and white sheets to identify and admire the various species.

We’ll also try “sugaring” to attract moths as well. The goal of the event – part of National Moth Week — is to raise awareness of these seldom seen insects and to celebrate biodiversity.

This free family-friendly event is sponsored by the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and Bergen County Audubon Society. Check for last-minute weather updates.

To rsvp, contact Don Torino of the BCAS at or 201-230-4983. (Rain date: Tuesday, July 22.)
