Friday, March 18, 2022, 7:00 pm via Zoom – “Moths of the Gila National Forest – Update” – presentation by Ronald Parry

Many moth species are now endangered by climate change, habitat destruction, and the overuse of pesticides. Greater public awareness of the importance and beauty of these insects is needed if we expect to save them. Most of the larger moths found within the Gila region fall into one of eleven moth families. Ron will give us an update on his talk three years ago, including a description of the microlepidoptera superfamily Zygaenoidea and a discussion of the functional roles played by the scales found on moths and butterflies.

Gila Chapter members will receive a Zoom link by email; any others interested may request a link from gilanative [at] gmail [dot] com. All are welcome. For more information, check our website at www.gilanps.org/events/programs.
