Assisting fellow members of our community in creating backyard habitats is the third essential part of our mission.
Participate in moth light trapping activities and events
We offer tours of our habitat May through September. We can accommodate groups of 15 or fewer people.
We can help you create your own backyard butterfly and moth habitat.
We acknowledge that human activity, such as climate change and habitat destruction, has had a detrimental effect on numerous insect species resulting in population endangerment and extinction. We thoughtfully care for our habitat by following Nature’s lead, providing limited intervention only when deemed beneficial. We respect all organisms within our habitat as they all have an important role or function.
A backyard habitat is an intentionally created space where plants and animals are provided a place to live and grow. The space must do all of the following:
of caterpillars hand raised
of butterflies sighted in the habitat
of moths sighted in the habitat
of native and beneficial non-native plants
of butterfly & moth habitat
