Kenai National Wildlife Refuge

Spooky Seasons event at Kenai National Wildlife Refuge is an annual kid’s hands-on program that invites families to spend some time exploring the things that some people find scary: bats, owls, nocturnal animals and learn more about them so their fears are lessened.  Through theme tables participants might become a bat and flap their “wings” the way bats do, or whisper into a sound tube to hear how echolocation works.  This year we included a moth table where children and their families looked at live moths through magnifiers, and colored the moth pictures for National Moth Week.  It was very popular and a perfect compliment to the nearby bat table where moths represented a bat food source during a bat food beanbag toss.  We had over 300 people attend the 4 hour event!!

Here are some of the moths that the kids colored (click on the picture to see it):
