Join us as we learn how moths are inextricably intertwined with native plants, bats, birds, and the whole of the eastern deciduous forest ecosystem. They also play an enormous role in the pollination of native plants and are often far more interesting than butterflies, both visually and behaviorally. This talk will be a pictorial journey into an intriguing and little known world that unfolds all around us. Presenter Jim McCormac worked for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources for 31 years as a botanist, later specializing in diversity projects for the Division of Wildlife. He has authored or coauthored six books, writes a nature column for the Columbus Dispatch, and regularly publishes a natural history blog. He has had hundreds of photos published in various forums, including on the TV show Jeopardy.
