The 2024 annual National Moth Week, July 20-28, invites novice and experienced “moth-ers,” alike, to observe these fascinating creatures in their own backyards and contribute to our scientific knowledge as part of one of the world’s largest citizen science projects. National Moth Week (NMW) offers the opportunity to learn about nighttime nature from backyards and gardens; porches, decks and balconies – anywhere a light can be turned on. Free registration of private and public moth-watching events is encouraged on the NMW website in order to show where moths are being observed around the world.
