Wonderful World of Moths
with Dave Small

Wednesday, September 25th     6:30pm - 7:30pm

Did you know that there are thousands of species of moths?  Some fly by day, but many more move in the nocturnal shadows.  Enjoy this presentation by Dave as he explores the dark side of these insects of the order Lepidoptera.

Dave is a lifelong Massachusetts resident.  He is the President of the 280 member Athol Bird and Nature Club, and currently Director of the Millers River Environmental Center.  Through workshops, lectures, and field trips around New England, Dave shares his passion for Birds, Butterflies, Dragonflies, and most recently, moths!
