A Mothing Night at the Museum

with John Himmelman, Author

$10 (Members 10% discount); does not include cost of the book

Purchase tickets here

Join Himmelman for his engaging discussion of moths before heading down to the banks of the river to see which moths were attracted by an illuminated sheet. The event celebrates the second edition of Himmelman’s book, Discovering Moths, Nighttime Jewels in Your Own Backyard. The title is being released at a time when people all over the world take time in the evening to set up lights and enjoy the colorful variety of moths the light attracts.

Fun for all ages. A book signing will conclude the talk.
