National Moth Week is a global celebration of moths and biodiversity. It is being held every year during the last full week of July. Registration for National Moth Week 2013 is now open. Register online at www.nationalmothweek.org.
Why moths? With more than 10,000 species in North America alone, moths offer endless options for study, education, photography and fun. Moths can be found everywhere from inner cities, to suburban backyards and the most wild and remote places. Their colors and patterns are often dazzling or so cryptic that they define camouflage. Most moths are creatures of the night, and need to be sought to see -- others fly like butterflies during the day. Finding moths is easy and can be as simple as leaving a porch light on and checking it after dark. Moth Nights are often held by nature groups and allow an easy opportunity for an introduction or for more serious pursuits. National Moth Week brings together everyone interested in nature. It is hoped that groups and individuals everywhere will spend some time during National Moth Week looking for moths and sharing what they've found. During National Moth Week attend a Moth Night event, start one, get some friends and neighbors together and check the porch lights from time to time, set up a light and see what is in your own backyard, read literature about moths. But no matter what, participate; the richness of moths is sure to fascinate. National Moth Week: Exploring Nighttime Nature.
