Come celebrate National Moth Week with a special nighttime presentation about the cousins of our butterfly friends. Texas Parks and Wildlife Urban Biologist Sam Kieschnick will lead this event.

These nocturnal insects have amazing patterns and colors, but special lights are needed to fully attract and appreciate them. We’ll be setting up some moth lights and moth sheets to entice the nocturnal bugs to visit for everyone to see. 

Critterman and his live animals are engaging entertainment for children and adults. Meet and learn about animals from around the world that can make you squirm. We teach that these animals look the way they do to survive, not scare anyone.

Free.

Refreshments at 6:30 p.m. Meeting starts at 7 p.m.
