It's National Moth Week! Join us in discovering the nocturnal pollinators of Goose Island.

As humans, we often think of the world through the lens of daylight. But did you know that up to 60% of insects are nocturnal? During the last night of National Moth Week, we're going to explore the adaptations of these nocturnal insects through different activities. We'll end the night exploring the insects we hope to attract. 

More about National Moth Week here.
