It's National Moth Week!

Citizen scientists around the world will hang white sheets and lights in backyards, woods and fields July 20 through July 28 for the second annual National Moth Week, a global project begun last year to encourage the public to observe and document one of nature’s most diverse and under-appreciated creatures.

National Moth Week provides a much-needed spotlight on moths and their ecological importance as well as their incredible biodiversity. National Moth Week (http://nationalmothweek.org) offers everyone, everywhere a unique opportunity to become a Citizen Scientist and contribute scientific data about moths. Numerous organizations around the world have partnered with National Moth Week and are supporting the event. Through partnerships with major online biological data depositories, National Moth Week participants can help map moth distribution and provide needed information on other life history aspects around the globe.
