National Pollinator Week: Lepidopterans

June 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Luna Moth

Join John Gerwin, Research Curator (Ornithology) and Educator (Nature-ology) with the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, as he discusses butterflies and moths in North Carolina. John will discuss his years of gardening with native plants in an urban, west Raleigh setting, and showcase some of the many butterflies and moths (Lepidoptera) that these plants attract. When John and his wife moved into their house in 2005, he documented a dozen butterflies that first year in the front and back yards. As of 2021 he has documented 44 species. Some are regular, others rather transient, but each adds to the old adage: build it, and they will come.
