Speaker at 10:30 am: Jay Adams on Nocturnal Moths of Lindsay
Public is welcome
Jay Adams will present an illustrated talk about the moths he has seen over the past 15 months or so at his home in Coupeville. Called “The Moths of Lindsay,” the presentation will document 250-and-counting local moth species, all of which fill an environmental niche largely unnoticed by many of us.
Recording of August meeting at Cama with Rus Holmes and Michael Kyte on Sea Star Wasting Syndrome with ROV is now online thanks to the editing skills of Allie Hudec who merged video, audio and slides to make it work for those who couldn’t see the slides or video live that day
