  • Overview

     The Albany Pine Bush Preserve has one of the most diverse and fascinating communities of moths anywhere in the Northeast, including many species that have adapted specifically to live in pine barrens. Celebrate National Moth Week by joining Dr. Tim McCabe, NYS Entomologist and Albany Pine Bush staff at the Discovery Center to spend an evening observing and documenting moths in the preserve. Participants should plan to do some light hiking, wear dark clothing (or moths may land on you), and bring headlamps or other light sources. Cameras also welcome!
