Poor moths. These nocturnal, comparatively drab insects don’t seem to get the attention butterflies do. But wait – National Moth Week, started in East Brunswick, N.J., celebrates these night fliers and the biodiversity of a natural world that’s active around the clock. Sorry, butterflies, but it’s someone else’s turn in the spotlight.
On Saturday, celebrate National Moth Week at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences’ Prairie Ridge Ecostation. At this night program, participants will take black lights and bait and go moth-spotting. All ages are welcome. Outdoor clothing is suggested. Prairie Ridge is located at 1671 Gold Star Drive in Raleigh. The program runs from 8 to 10 p.m. and it’s free. Contact Chris Goforth at 919-707-8882 or email@example.com with questions.
