About the event

Please join us for "Gardening for Moths" as Chelsea Gottfried, author of Gardening for Moths: a regional guide, talks to us about the ecological importance of moths and how to provide for their needs in your garden.

Moths are beautiful and critical members of ecological communities and native plant gardens can provide welcoming habitat for them. Adult moths sip nectar and pollinate flowering native plants. Moth caterpillars nibble on native host plants for their food. In turn, moth caterpillars and adults are a major food source for many creatures including other insects, spiders, birds and bats. Chelsea Gottfried will introduce you to moth species you can attract to your garden and the native plants that they need to thrive.
