National Moth Week Event at Erickson Wetlands

We’re happy to announce that the Wisconsin Entomological Society will be holding an official event in celebration of National Moth week.  The event will be held on Saturday July 26th, 2014 at the Erickson wetlands property near Argyle, WI.  The event is being hosted in cooperation with the Driftless Area Land Conservancy.   The newly established Erickson wetlands property borders a portion of the Pecatonica River and is in need of a biotic survey.  By participating, we’ll be able to contribute to the knowledge of the insect fauna on the property.

The event will be starting in the afternoon for some daytime collecting and will continue after dark with baiting and light traps for moths.  Anyone is welcome to stop by and participate.

The final details (parking directions, times) are being worked out and will be posted shortly on the Meetings and Events page of the WES website.
