Outdoor Fest , March  2018

Outdoor Fest Key Largo - with 35 people attending

We had over 90 people come out to see our presentation on Moths over two nights. In this time we got to see some incredibly rare moths that came to the sheet including Hypena subidalis, a noctuid moth that has only been seen a few times in the United States, as well Maruca vitata, a new US record which is thought to be a potential legume pest. We saw a ton of great moths and had a great time meeting new people and talking about bugs! Below is a collection of pictures from the weekend. 

ENJOY!
