Good find, KC, there is an event 1/2 mile from me. Not particularly a moth-y place (an urban park), but easy to access.

I'm surprised no one had posted it before. From looking at the Ohio events, other moth'ers knew about it in March. I found out because I needed more sleeve material and saw a blurb about the week on BioQuip's website. BTW, they have a nice luna shirt for sale. Does not come in my size. :(

Less than 12 hours until National Moth Week!!!

I've found many moth eggs in my life but I don't remember ever finding saturnid eggs in the wild. Nice find on the polys.

Turned out the Portland event was private, rather than public.
I did go to the park briefly, and did see a moth, small and pale.

I figured out that some events were private when I was looking at the map on Sunday night. I kept wondering about this one woman inviting everyone to her house to look for moths. Made more sense that I'm not invited.
