Moth and insect enthusiasts Katy Emde and John Schneider will set up black (UV) lights and white screen to attract moths and other night insects. We had some Harris County firsts last year and a lot of fun! Once it gets dark, we’ll see what shows up! We’ll be ID’ing, photographing and talking moths and other night insects such as the silver butt beetle. Light refreshments will be served in the house – please register, so we can get an estimate for food.
- We encourage you to post your photos on iNaturalist and add them to the Deer Park Prairie Project (https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/deer-park-prairie).
