Lenora's 9th Annual Garden Party and Mothing • Miami County

Saturday, Jul 14th, 2018 @ 7pm-midnight
Long Lips Farm • 27995 Plum Creek Road • Paola, KS • Map

Potluck dinner at 7:00 PM. People are welcome to come early to enjoy the garden, birds, butterflies and pollinators in action. 90% of insects, including the Lepidoptera, are highly host-plant specific so focusing on native plants in the garden fosters an incredible diversity of moths that will be drawn to mercury vapor lights after sundown. Bring a dish to pass, your adult beverages and lawn chairs. And swim suits if you wish to dip in the lake.

We’ll set up black lights at sundown and should start seeing action by 9:30 PM.

Directions: WARNING: ONLINE MAPPING may send you way south to Osawatomie. Long Lips Farm is north of Paola, ˝ block south of K-68 on Plum Creek Road. Look for the Long Lips Farm sign on K-68, 6.5 miles west of K-7/169. Contact: Lenora Larson 913-284-3360
