The Joy of Mothing - Darke County Parks

July 11, 2015
8 - 11 pm

Birdwatchers become birders, butterfly-lovers become “butterfliers”, so why not “moth-ing?” A short presentation at Shawnee Prairie Preserve will introduce us to these fascinating nighttime (and daytime) creatures: what they are, what they do, and their role in the lives of the plants and animals around them (including us). Park staff will have bait set and will spend the rest of the evening discovering what moths are on the wing and how to identify them. Dave Horn is Emeritus Professor of Entomology at Ohio State University of 43 years, is a former Director of the Ohio Biological Survey and past president of the Columbus Audubon Society and the Ohio Lepidopterists. He is author of the “Moths of Ohio Field Guide” published by the Ohio Division of Wildlife. His recent research has investigated impact of prescribed fi res and utility right-of-way construction on insects (including moths) in forests of southern Ohio and has studied moths in New England and California.
