It's National Moth Week

Remember, it's National Moth Week this week.  It's an effort to get people more aware of the biodiversity around them and to do a little citizen science.
The main feature of Moth Week are the nighttime events held around the world where people can help collect data about moths in the area.  
Unfortunately, it looks like there are no moth events scheduled for the Twin Cities area, but maybe there's one near you.
Maybe I'll plan one myself next year.
Even if you don't attend a moth event this week, you can at least keep your eye out for them this week. Maybe leave a porch light on and see what it attracts; every time I do and I actually stop to look, something new and unfamiliar comes to visit.
