Moths and Their Host Plants with Wade Wander

July 16 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

This talk will discuss some NJ moths and the native plants that host their caterpillars and will feature many photos of moth caterpillars, adult moths and the plants that sustain them.

Wade Wander, along with his wife, Sharon, are a partners in Wander Ecological Consultants, investigating wetlands and conducting surveys for Endangered and Threatened species. For many years they taught courses on plant identification and Endangered and Threatened Species of Wildlife for the Rutgers University Office of Continuing Professional Education. Wade has been an active New Jersey naturalist since childhood, interested in birds, reptiles and amphibians, plants, and butterflies (and of course, moths and other insects). He is a past president of the New Jersey Butterfly Club, for which he is a frequent speaker and field-trip leader. At the moth station he runs at their home in Sussex County, Wade has recorded more than 1100 species of moths since 2001. In short, Wade loves moths!
