Introduction to the Wonderful World of Moths.

Our presenter will be Lisa Maier

Many people think of moths as the lesser, dingy-looking cousins of butterflies. Moths are not only beautiful with thousands of different species to look for, but they also play extremely important roles in our ecosystems as pollinators and as food for other animals. Moth enthusiast Lisa Maier will introduce us to the wonderful world of moths, how to find them, how attract them to your yard and the import roles they play in the environment.

Lisa has always been a nature lover but developed a passion for moths from her love of birds and native plants and how they are all dependent on each other. She is currently Vice President of McHenry County Audubon Society, is a mentor for the Wildflower Propagation and Preservation Committee’s Natural Garden In Your Yard program and does wildlife monitoring for McHenry County Conservation District, Illinois Department of Natural Resources, and Bird Conservation Network. Lisa has found nearly 80 species of moths in her yard and has searched for moths as far away as Central America.

Expanding habitat, engaging landowners, connecting preserves

The Chicago Living Corridor Alliance is a not-for-profit umbrella organization comprised of organizations dedicated to the furtherance of native habitat.  It provcalca-logoides private landowners with inspiration and resources to help them support pollinator populations, conserve clean water, increase biodiversity and restore soil. Inspired by Doug Tallamy’s vision of a Homegrown National Park, we believe private landowners have an important role to play in reversing the negative impact of ecosystem loss and fragmentation, land and water pollution, and climate change.

Where to Purchase Plants. Find resources for purchasing native plants on our Directory of Native Plant Nurseries & Landscapers, & our list of Native Plant Sales!

How To Get Involved.  One way is to add native habitat to your property.  Another is to volunteer on a natural habitat project in your community.  It can be a small project like a butterfly garden, or a larger natural area restoration project.  It can be for a residential property, a private protected land or a commercial property. 

See the CLC Participate page for a description of organizations that can help you get started with your property, and that have volunteer opportunities in your community. For a map of private landowners committed to this mission,  go to the CLC Map page. 

Are you a private landowner who has already converted land to a natural area?  See the Map page and join a group near you, to get your property registered and added to the map.

Also check out our Resources section that provides information about getting started with a native plant garden,  criteria needed to qualify for getting a property on our map, and many other resources for helping you.
