The event -- we're calling it "the Moth Ball" this year-- is part of the National Moth Week celebration, and a couple of the founders of this global event are hoping to attend.
The Moth Ball is free, and runs from 8:30 to 10 p.m. We'll present a very short talk (with pix) about why moths matter , and we'll set up white sheets and moth-attracting lights to see what we attract -- and try to identify the various (and sometimes beautiful) bugs dancing on the cloth.
We will paint a few trees with a moth-attracting bait to see what else flies in, and we have an amazing surprise attraction.
Our co-sponsors are the Concerned Citizens of Allendale, the fab folks who saved the Fell House and who hold nifty community events there.
The Fell House is located at 475 Franklin Turnpike, just south of the Celery Farm Parking Lot.
