Did you know that scientists estimate that there are up to 500,000 moth species? Most of these moths are nocturnal making them difficult to see.

To bring them into view, Mothing enthusiast Cheri Pierce will return to the Florida Scrub-Jay Trail with special lights and screening to allow close-up viewing of these magnificent creatures of the night. Join us!  Please see all the details below.
