Learn About Bats, Moths, & Agriculture

Friday, August 2nd 2024

Bureau of Land Management, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks & the Montana Moth Project invites you to come learn about bats & moths in Phillips County, & their importance to agriculture, Fri. Aug. 2nd at 8:30p.m. at Trafton Park in Malta. The program will highlight the different species of bats & moths found in Phillips County, & the important relationships between them & local plant communities. Moths are a major food source for bat species, & it's being discovered that they are also key pollinators for many of the crops grown in Phillips County, Montana, (alfalfa, mustards, peas, cover crops, etc.). This is especially important due to increasing interest in using cover crops as a part of managing soil health. Organizers will set up a light screen to attract & illuminate moths, & mobile bat recorders to identify bats. Speakers include Nicole Hussey, non-game biologist for Montana FWP, & Mat Seidensticker, executive director & lead researcher for the Montana Moth Project. Hussey hosts bat walks across Montana’s Hi-Line, & Seidensticker conducts moth sampling across the state. Through its partnership with the Gilette Museum at Colorado State University, the Montana Moth Project owns the largest collection of Montana moths. Besides discussing the connections among bats, moths & agriculture, Hussey & Seidensticker will describe their efforts to protect bats & moths.
