EDISON, NJ - The environmental nonprofit Edison Wetlands Association (EWA) will host an Owl Call and Moth Night in the Dismal Swamp Conservation Area starting at their popular Triple C Ranch and Nature Center at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 5, 2014.

Renowned birder, Emile DeVito, leader of many owl tours in Central Jersey and Manager of Science and Stewardship at New Jersey Conservation Foundation, will guide the Owl Prowl through the Dismal Swamp trails giving the public the chance to hear and possibly see Great-Horned and Screech Owls in their natural habitat. Then Blaine Rothhauser, biologist, naturalist and photographer, leader of many moth nights in Central Jersey, will lure moths to the Triple C Ranch. This is an up close and personal opportunity to see a variety of moths, such as the Isabella Tiger Moth or the Pink-spotted hawkmoth.

Visitors can bring cameras, binoculars, flashlights, and should wear boots or shoes that may get wet or dirty. Please check Edison Wetlands Association or Dismal Swamp Conservation Area for updates on the event or cancellation due to inclement weather. There is a $5 suggested donation per person.

Hardly controversial, I eagerly held hands with friends ...
