About the Event
Rob Pendergast is a passionate birder and nature enthusiast hailing from Plover, Wisconsin. His journey into birding sparked a fascination with citizen science, igniting his curiosity about the distribution and abundance of birds in Portage County. This curiosity opened the door for Rob to delve into various aspects of local wildlife, winged and otherwise. In recent years, his focus has been on documenting the incredible diversity of local moths, with over 600 species documented to date.
Join us for our October ALAS program as Rob shares with us the fascinating life histories of moths, shedding light on the remarkable adaptations they’ve developed to thrive in their unique environments. He will also guide us through the process of attracting, documenting, identifying, and contributing to citizen science projects of moths in Wisconsin.
