Arboretum at Night

Wine, Cheese and Moths

Are moths simply drab butterflies with insomnia? National Moth Week begins this weekend and while we know how many species of butterflies flit around Houston (over 100!), no one is quite sure how many different moths can be found here. After an informative presentation about these members of the Lepidoptera order of insects, we will take a pleasant night hike explore use black lights to explore three different habitats for nocturnal flying insects, including moths.
