Pot-Dinner and Mothing in a Native Plant Garden • Miami County

Saturday, Jul 18th, 2015 @ 7pm-12am
27995 Plum Creek Road • Paola, KS • Map

90% of insects, including the Lepidoptera, are highly host-plant specific so focusing on native plants will foster an incredible diversity of moths that will be drawn to mercury vapor lights after sundown. Enjoy this lush garden and a pot-luck dinner with friends, then watch the insect party after dark. Bring a dish to pass, your adult beverages and lawn chairs. And swim suits if you wish to dip in the lake.

Alert: LONG LIPS FARM is 1 block south of K-68 in northwest Miami County. Some GPS & mapping software is wrong. The Google map link is correct.
