Join us for an online presentation with Jason Dombroskie on the moths of the Finger Lakes Region of New York, USA.
This intimate journey into the hidden lives of moths and their caterpillars will look at some of the amazing species in your backyard. Some of these moths take medicine to fight parasites, bubble poison from their necks, produce pheromones that can be smelled from over a mile away, or jam bat echolocation. We will also examine caterpillars with gills, stinky tentacles, and horns that squirt acid, as well as ones that throw their feces, and others that live inside regurgitated owl pellets. Finally, we will explore how individual species have and continue to shape entire ecosystems across the Finger Lakes region and how you can observe moths.
