Moths & Music at Audubon

- Jamestown, NY – Campfire, acoustic guitar, beverages, natural wonders….

If this sounds like a delightful evening to you, you’ll want to be at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary’s “Moths & Music” on Saturday, June 7, 2014.

The 8:30-10:30 p.m. event will begin around a campfire in Audubon’s backyard with Jamie Haight entertaining on his acoustic guitar.

As the sun sets, Haight will switch gears and put on his entomologist -- that’s a biologist who studies insects -- hat.

To learn what is making those chirping and buzzing sounds, Audubon will put up some lights and explore what insects are attracted to them. Haight will also lead a short walk around Audubon’s property to look at moths attracted by “moth mash,” a special mixture of fermenting fruit and liquid.

Jamie Haight is a Health Department Biologist. As a musician, he has played guitar and performed both as a soloist and with local bands for more than 20 years.

Participants are reminded to dress for the weather. Insect repellent is recommended.

Admission of $20 or $16 for Friends of the Nature Center includes two tickets, each good for one Southern Tier beer or glass of wine. Non-alcoholic drinks will also be provided.

Participation is limited. Paid reservations are required by Tuesday, June 5, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345, stopping in, or clicking on “Moths & Music” at 

The Audubon Center & Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania.
