PEEC News:

Come see moths and other nocturnal insects at the Los Alamos Nature Center 8-10 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Mouser Williams will set up a moth attractor light and a big white sheet for the moths to land on. Over the course of the evening, various moths and other insects will stop by to investigate the lamp and will be easy to examine at close range.

Look for the bright black-light and white sheet near the flower beds in front of the nature center. We will provide UV-protection glasses for everyone to use, but please bring a flashlight or headlamp—there will be no moonlight. This event is dependent on the weather. If it is raining, even slightly, the event will be canceled.

Mouser Williams an avid birder and wildlife photographer. He has lived in Los Alamos for 13 years. When not enjoying the outdoors, he moonlights as an electrical engineer at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

This event is free to the public, and no advance registration is required.
