The school year has started, but that isn’t slowing us down up on Sherman Hollow Road. Check out the fall programs at the Birds of Vermont Museum, sign up for one if you like, or just drop by. We’re open Wednesday – Sunday, 10-4, until Halloween. We’re open by appointment other days and after. The trails are open sunrise to sunset, every day. Libraries have passes, and admission is always free for members (https://birdsofvermont.org/membership/).
Do you know how many different kinds of mosquitoes we have in Vermont? And that some don’t bother humans at all? How about ticks, and when to worry about which diseases? Have you seen “Blackflies: defenders of Vermont” on a T-shirt, and wondered what roles blackflies play in our ecosystems? Join this session and find out more!
What’s small, cute, and comes out at night? Moths!*
Join Vermont Entomological Society naturalists and entomologists for a twilight walk to find out what attracts moths, what they do in the wild, and how they differ from butterflies.
Bring magnifying glasses and an insect net if you have one. Do bring your water bottle and dress for outdoors.
