2024 Moth Blacklighting

This is a free joint event (including free food) with Seneca Meadows, Montezuma Audubon Center, and SUNY-ESF.  Come and join us, with special guest SUNY ESF pollinator ecologist Molly Jacobson, as we learn about and view up close some of the most diverse, beautiful, yet underappreciated insects that live in our backyards – moths!  As pollinators, decomposers, and baby bird food, moths are an indispensable part of our ecosystems, and we can support them with thoughtful choices around our homes and gardens. Through UV “blacklighting” we will attract a variety of moths for everyone to enjoy, from tiny leafminers to giant hawkmoths, and teach participants how to document their sightings on iNaturalist, where the data can contribute to conservation.
 
All ages, individuals, families, and groups are welcome!  The location will be the Seneca Meadows Education Center at 1977 NYS Route 414 Waterloo, NY 13165.  We will begin with dinner at 7:30 PM, then once it turns dark, we will be outside to observe moths and other nocturnal insects.  Please use the right side of this message to register (required).  If you have any questions, please call (315) 539-5089 and leave a detailed message and/or email to fred.leff@audubon.org
