The world needs more moth watchers. Every one of you who watches moths might try this during Moth Week: put on a Meet a Moth for Breakfast at your sheet or even porch light from 5 AM to 9 AM. Invite your friends—a book discussion group, sports team, scout or 4H group, school class, neighborhood, whatever group you might encourage to drop in. It’s BYOB— bring your own beverage. Donuts will be supplied and moths beautiful and strange will be there.”
The donuts might be paid for by your local bank, land trust, grocery store, police department, etc. They get good publicity and so do moths. Everyone wins.
