Join us for an evening of “mothing” with naturalist, photographer, and conservation biologist Blaine Rothauser. There are over 110,000 species of moths worldwide, and about 2,800 in New Jersey. Blaine will bring several high intensity metal halide lights that will attract a myriad of species for us to view, identify, and photograph if desired. We may see pastel colored emeralds, delicate plume moths, and fuzzy dot-lined white moths. Who knows, maybe even New Jersey’s largest member of this guild, the lime-green Luna Moth, may show up at our party. We may also see other nocturnal insects like leafhoppers, craneflies, mayflies, and the outer-space looking mantisfly. Moths are very sensitive to environmental degradation, so the species diversity will tell us something about the habitats and health of the ecosystem at Jonathan’s Woods. The program will begin at 8:00 PM. Feel free to bring a snack and non-alcoholic beverage. We also recommend bringing flashlights and beach chairs. Please register by July 14th. All minors must be accompanied by an adult.  Parking and accommodations are limited we recommend you RSVP in advance.
