Chimney Swifts and Moth Night (Matthews)

March 5, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for a unique HAWK program on March 5th at Purser-Hulsey Park. As with many birds, the population of chimney swifts has been declining. Unlike other birds, swifts do not perch. They spend all day in the air and stop flying only when they roost at night or tend to their young. Our speaker, Ken Kneidel, will talk about chimney swifts and explain how his special tower at the park is part of helping this bird.

As dusk turns into evening, Kneidel will shift the discussion to moths. He will illustrate how moths are different from butterflies, not only in appearance but by their abundance, diversity, and their role in ecosystems. Unfortunately, insects are also declining in number. Kneidel will talk about what you can do to promote their survival. After the presentation, we will have a moth night by setting up lights & moth collecting sheets.
