National Moth Week is a new project celebrating moths and biodiversity in the US.
July 23-29, 2012
The purpose of Moth Week is two-fold; to encourage people to go outside and look at the life around them, and also to encourage people to document and submit what they see as part of a larger citizen science project.
You don’t need to know what you are looking at to participate–if you post your images on the Discover Life site (following the protocol), they will identify them for you!
You can find instructions for having a Moth Party at your house on the Discover Life website, too. I plan to have a Moth Night Celebration at my house in Connecticut; let me know if you are interested! I live in a perfect area for mothing–streams, a big pond, forest, and agricultural land all near me. We’ll get lots of interesting insects, including moths.
Join me in being one Bad Moth-er…
