Moth Night Success!
Moth Night was so much fun, despite the rain toward the end! It’s always fun to enjoy the CCNC after dark and we were excited to see who showed up at our blacklights. To attract more moths to your yard, plant native plants that serve as host plants and provide nectar and avoid using insecticides. You can ask the mosquito fogger to please skip your house to avoid unnecessary mortality to moths and other insects.
Nature Explorers Camp 2022
We extend special thanks to our Volunteer of the Month - Mrs. Kelly Keith! Kelly generously donated her summer Education Coordinator salary to the Clinton Community Nature Center. We are so thankful for her hard work and generosity! Camp was a major success! We had 42 registrants, and thanks to our members and donors, we were able to provide several scholarships! Our camp this year was funded in large part by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Youth Participation Initiative Program. This grant funding provided all of the supplies we needed to make this camp really fun. Thank you, MDWFP!
