Come learn about the wild world of moths and how to find them.  The diversity of moths is incredible and once you open your eyes to their presences you will notice them everywhere.  In Illinois alone there are several thousand different species you may encounter.  We will explore the various shapes, sizes, colors, and how moths are important to local ecosystems.
