National Moth Week celebrates the beauty, life cycles, and habitats of moths. “Moth-ers” of all ages and abilities are encouraged to learn about, observe, and document moths in their backyards, parks, and neighborhoods. National Moth Week is being held, worldwide, during the last full week of July. NMW offers everyone, everywhere a unique opportunity to become a Citizen Scientist and contribute scientific data about moths. Through partnerships with major online biological data depositories, NMW participants can help map moth distribution and provide needed information on other life history aspects around the globe.

Lecture Series 2022


Magnificent Monarchs with Audrey Harrison

March 31, at 6:00pm 

Over the last 20 years, the population size of Monarchs has declined drastically, raising concerns of all who care about this amazing creature. One way we can help is to protect and create pollinator habitat, and provide host plants for Monarch caterpillars and nectar plants for adults.

Mississippi is an important part of the Magnificent Monarch migration, and we have an important role to play in ensuring the survival of Monarch butterflies!

Join us on Thursday, March 31st, starting at 6pm, as Audrey discusses how we can protect Mississippi’s Monarch and create Monarch and pollinator habitats in our own yards.


There will be an educational Monarch activity for children during the lecture, which will be outdoors if weather permits.
