National Moth Week!


Three days to the first annual National Moth Week!  There are currently over 200 moth week events registered in 18 countries, and 49 US states [we are looking for someone in North Dakota to register a moth week event!]. We were featured on the citizen science web page for Scientific American and were #1 in suggested summer projects on the citizen science website SciStarter. NMW was also mentioned in many other news and nature websites and blogs.

Welcome new participants – if you are getting this email, your event is on the map, and you could win a mothing book.  National Moth Week has teamed up with leading nature-writers to give participants a unique opportunity to win a signed copy of their books. Please find the online form for the book contesthere

We encourage everyone to submit moth observations to one of our partners’ websites. Check out thedata submission page for recent updates from Discover Life, BAMONA and Project Noah. If you submit your moth spottings during NMW to the ‘Moths of the World‘ mission at Project Noah,  you will earn a special Limited-Edition Moth Week patch!  There is no limit to how many photos you can submit, or to how many websites/organization.

And while you are out at the light taking photos of mohts, don’t forget to take pictures of the people, the setup, other wildlife and whatever else is interesting. Send those pictures direly to us  Selected photos will be published on the Events Photo Gallery.

Happy mothing!
