Moth mania at Harsha Lake

Join the park ranger at the Harsha Lake Visitor Center 9 p.m. Saturday, July 18 for a program geared for adults and families with children, 7 and up, regarding moths.

As the evening darkens, participants will visit special lights set up to attract moths and search for caterpillars using a secret tool. One light will be set up under a shelter, so this program will go on rain or shine. If severe weather threatens, participants will take cover in the Visitor Center. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Please pre-register by calling 513-797-6081 or go to www.LRL-POC-harsha@usace.army.mil by July 15.

Moths are not only beautiful and interesting, they play an important role in the food chain, serving as pollinators and protein-rich food for spiders, birds, bats and many other creatures, according to a spokesperson.

While most people view moths as pests, only one family of the hundreds of thousands of species eats clothes. Some moths are as bright as butterflies, others are so cryptically colored, they define camouflage. Celebrate National Moth Week by venturing outdoors at night and discovering a new world that most never see. There are an estimated 2,500 species in Ohio.

All programs are offered free of charge. For more information about this program and to register, call the park ranger at 513-797-6081 or go to www.LRL-POC-harsha@usace.army.mil.

The Harsha Lake Visitor Center is located at 2185 Slade Road just off state Route 222 about five miles south of Batavia.

Those who use Mapquest or GPS, the Visitor Center is located about one and one-half miles further on Slade Road, past the main dam and Corps boat ramp.
