May Mothing

What a great time The Moth Posse (aka The Mothia) had during City Nature Challenge! We mothed at a different location each night. TNC's Brazos Woods Preserve and Brazos Bend State Park were new mothing locations for us. Brazos Bend SP mothing was spectacular! Until we got rained out, anyway. Glad to see the Houston-Galveston team ultimately claimed top species count in Texas again but boy, what stiff competition from San Antonio! They did a great job this year.

Coming up this weekend are two public mothing events. Please join us!

May 11 - Saturday - 7:00p - 9:30p
John Paul Landing Park's inaugural Moth Night. Presentation at 7:00p by legendary moth-er Stuart Marcus. Now retired, he logged over 1,000 moth species while working for Trinity River NWR. Talk will be followed by mothing until 9:30p. Families welcome.

Very cool to hear that JPL Park is launching Moth Nights too. Our nocturnal naturalist community grows!
