The Garland Parks and Recreation Department and the Society are hosting An Evening with Moths, with special guest Sam Kieschnick, the Urban Wildlife Biologist from Texas Parks and Wildlife. This event is coordinated with National Moth Week, a citizen-science event which celebrates the beauty, life cycles, and habitats of moths. Kids and other people of all ages will love this event.

This family-friendly activity is all about moths! Most moths are nocturnal, so we will have several light-sheets set up to attract moths that live in the Preserve. Experts will be on hand to answer questions and help with identification. Bring a magnifying glass if you have one, because many of these beautiful moths are very small.

The evening isn’t just about moths – many types of insects will be identified. All observations will be reported to iNaturalist, the citizen-science App that is run by National Geographic and the California Academy for Sciences. Last year, we reported over 1,400 observations, 360 species. Plus, we had a toad that was checking out the smorgasbord, 5 copperheads and one unidentified snake, a rabbit or two, and a loud frog chorus.
Come be a “Moth-er!”
