This resource was created by Meghan Martin and Kate Reilly.
Note: You can also track Meghan's mural progress on Twitter, using the hashtag #MoonlitMeadowMural. Posts are scheduled Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays until completion.
Follow the work of Duke Farms educator and artist, Meghan Martin, as she demonstrates the progress on her newest work entitled, Moths in Moonlit Meadows. Along the way, we will be posting guided questions aligned to the environmental and natural sciences that formulate the basis of her design decisions. Throughout the project you will:
- Be introduced to 14 native species of moths while learning fun facts about their features
- Develop a keener sense of the biodiversity exhibited in healthy meadows
- Discover the important role moths play in our environment
In preparation, please note that the project includes 25 days of posts prior to unveiling the completed work. We hope you enjoy the adventure while discovering the ecological significance of meadows and moths to our natural world.
