July 21: National Moth Week event in Elyria Canyon Park

Join us in Elyria Canyon Park for a night of Moth Watching!!!
The Mt Washington Beautification Committee is thrilled to be participating in a National Moth Week event, albeit a few days early to accommodate the busy schedules of the folks involved.  Retired lepidopterist from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, Julian Donahue, will be leading the event on the evening of July 21, 2012 in Elyria Canyon ParkJulian plans to use a black light and other light sources to attract moths that can be identified, counted and released.  Julian will also provide insight into the life cycles of those moths and how they fit into the ecological environments of the native Black Walnut woodland and coastal sage ecosystems found in Elyria Canyon Park.  Join us for a fun evening.
