Mothapalooza 2014 is coming! Please join us June 27-29, 2014 in beautiful Glouster, OH at the Burr Oak State Park Resort. This site is being continually updated with the details, so keep checking back to see the field trips we are planning, the expert guides who will be joining us, and more!
Sponsored by the Ohio Division of Wildlife, the Conference will feature Keynote Speakers/leaders including David L. Wagner, author of “Caterpillars of Eastern North America”, Fiona A. Reid, author and artist who is studying nocturnal pollinators, Dr. David Horn, President of Ohio Lepidoptera Society and Tami Gingrich, Field Naturalist with the Geauga Park District.
All of the species featured on these pages are ones that can be found in this area during June! (Photos courtesy of John Howard, who will also be leading field trips and co-conducting our Moth Photography workshop with Jim McCormac.)
Expect more than just moths! We will be leading daytime field trips to enjoy the area's unique native plants and the scores of butterflies and other insects they host as well.
We anticipate great birding as well. Expert guides will lead a Saturday morning bird walk around the lodge.
We hope you will join us for what should be a one-of-a-kind Nature Experience!
