The program, titled “Join the Dark Side: Studying the Fabulous Diversity of Local Moths to Understand Environmental Changes,” will begin with a presentation on moths from John Pickering of University of Georgia and Nancy Lowe of Science Can Dance. Both Pickering and Lowe are part of Discover Life. Refreshments will follow, and when the moths come out around 10 p.m., the moth party will begin. By photographing and recording species activity at different sites, Discover Life aims to assess how species respond to important environmental variables. The moth party will end at midnight.
