Experience the magic of moths. These insects are often thought of as being less interesting than their popular lepidopteran cousins, butterflies. But on this night, we’ll dispel this myth and show you the fascinating, flitting world of these winged beauties. Not only are they important pollinators, but they are also excellent indicators of the health of their natural environments. We’ll take a night hike out to the Native Texas Butterfly Garden and study moths firsthand through the use of non-lethal catch and release methods. The diversity of what we will find may come as surprise! Melanie Schuchart, one of our key entomology volunteers, will also lead an insightful talk about these amazing creatures. This event will also feature our new 4-foot diameter Magic Planet digital global display as it illustrates the night sky in a whole new way. Light snacks will be available. Pre-registration is required. $19.
