Moth book talk: April 1, Franklin Park Conservatory

I'm giving a talk on the wonderful world of moths, based on my and coauthor Chelsea Gottfried's new book, Gardening for Moths. Chelsea will also be at this event, which is Saturday, April 1, 1pm to 3pm, at the beautiful Franklin Park Conservatory. And it's free, but registration is required. If you're interested in a book, we'll have some there. We'd love to see you there, and for full details and to register, CLICK HERE.

As a photographic bonus, for those of you who like to take pictures, the Conservatory's Blooms and Butterflies event will be in full swing. Free-flying butterflies - raised at the conservatory - of many species are in the massive, lushly vegetated rainforest room. It's a great chance to not only see many showy butterflies, but excellent practice in tuning up one's camera skills. I'm definitely taking my macro rig and heading into the rainforest after our event!
