Brilliant and Bristly Buckmoths


Join us for a 0.9-mile hike to discover the amazing world of buckmoths. The inland barrens buckmoth is a large beautiful moth with bold black and white wings that flies for only a brief window of time during daylight in the early fall. A species of special concern in New York State, our local buckmoths depend on scrub oaks that thrive in this sandy, fire-dependent ecosystem. This program meets at the Karner Barrens trailhead (#1). Suitable for tweens, teens and adults. Sign-up online.
