Join Museum naturalists and visiting moth experts for an evening moth party at Prairie Ridge! We'll have several mothing stations set up where you can observe the moths of Prairie Ridge and help us document the species we see. Bring a camera with a macro setting (if you have one) and help photograph the moths that come to the lights. We'll submit the evening's data to Discover Life and add to our growing species list of local moths. Bring a flashlight, wear dark colored clothes, and come ready for an evening of learning and science!  For more information or to register for this program, please contact Chris Goforth at or 919.707.8882.
