Peter Carson and Mary Gartshore have been studying local moth species for a number of years. They use light traps and sugaring methods to attract the moths, as well as rearing some of the larger species, and will have some on display. They will discuss the natural history of these nighttime fliers. Meet at 316 Norfolk County Road 60 in Walsingham. The farm is on the south side of the road 5.5 km west of Highway 59. Questions? Contact Mary or Peter at 519-586-3985. Note: On occasion, circumstances beyond our control may require cancellation of a planned event. All event cancellations will be posted on the NFN web site.
Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month, at the Simcoe Seniors Centre, Pond Street, in Simcoe. Doors open at 7:15 p.m., and the program begins at 7:30 p.m.
Various field outings are also planned throughout the year, and include trips to local conservation areas, bird banding, winter tree identification and much more. Field outings are free of charge.
