Learn about moths

“Moths of Natrona County,” will be the topic of the October Werner Wildlife Study Series at 7 p.m., on Thursday, Oct. 15.

Dwaine Wagoner will share photographs and natural history of the moths that enliven gardens and wild country during the warm months and survive Wyoming’s harsh winter, according to India Hayford, museum assistant. Wagoner describes himself as “an old curmudgeon with a high school diploma and an advanced degree of curiosity.”

According to Ms. Hayford, Wagoner is a longtime volunteer at the Werner Wildlife Museum and the Tate Geological Museum. “Dwaine has personally accounted for 579 of the 600 moth species currently registered with Butterflies and Moths of North America for Natrona County,” she said, adding, “Don’t miss this chance to hear Natrona County’s foremost moth expert speak on his favorite topic.”

“Natrona County Moths” is free and open to the public. The Werner Wildlife Museum is located off the Casper College campus at 405 E. 15th Street. For more information, call the museum at 235-2108 or email
