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.

Rain date for Rogers Wildlife Center open house. Tour the wildlife rehabilitation center, overseen by Kathy Rogers, which specializes in treating birds.

Complimentary screening of Sides of a Horn.

In parts of Asia, people pay a higher price for a pound of rhino horn than they would pay for a pound of gold or cocaine. Their irrational demand for a substance no different from human fingernails is fueling an ideological battle on the ground in South Africa.

Many South Africans living near the country’s declining rhino populations face the heart-breaking decision of living in crippling poverty or aiding and abetting the global trade in rhino horn and other illegal wildlife products.
