Virtual Event: Mysterious Moths
Our fifth presentation in Penguin Court's "The Winged World Around Us" virtual series features mysterious moths! Though seldom seen due to their nocturnal nature, moths are every bit as beautiful and charismatic as their butterfly cousins. Their role as pollinators is essential to the survival of many of our plants, especially orchids. Most importantly, moths and their caterpillars are food for birds, bats, and countless other animals.
Join us online as we take a photographic journey into the intriguing world of moths, exploring which of our native plants are most enticing to these lovely Lepidopterans, and learn how we can all greatly benefit the ecosystem around us by "moth gardening" in our yards.
This program will be led by Chelsea Gottfried, who works as a Naturalist and Nature-based Preschool Teacher for the Crawford Park District in north central Ohio. She is an avid native gardener and a passionate entomologist as well as the co-author of "Gardening for Moths: A Regional Guide."
