Not Just Bird Food, The Moths of Renfrew County
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 perfume that can be smelled from kilometers 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. Additionally, we will explore how individual species have and continue to shape entire ecosystems across Renfrew County.
