COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – Most homeowners scurry for the fly swatter at the first sign of a moth in the hallway closet. But this week, the misunderstood flying insect is being honored at a state park near Columbia.
Rock Bridge Memorial State Park celebrates National Moth Week with a Saturday night viewing by flashlight. The two-hour free event begins at 8:30 p.m. at the park’s Gilbert picnic shelter. Participants are advised to bring flashlights but leave insect repellent at home, since bug sprays can drive moths away. The Friends of Rock Bidge Memorial State Park will provide ingredients to make s’mores.
