Moth-ing 'til Midnight with Sam Kieschnick

What stirs in the night at Tandy Hills? How about some really amazing and unique moths?!? Believe it or not, there is a tremendous diversity of moths in the metroplex. These nocturnal insects have amazing patterns and colors, but special lights are needed to fully attract and appreciate them. We’ll be setting up some moth lights and moth sheets to entice the nocturnal bugs to visit for everyone to see. Bring a flashlight and a camera to document some of the neat flyers as well. Come and be a moth-er at Tandy Hills from sunset until around midnight!
