Exploring Nature, Summer

  • Children in Iceland rescue young puffins at night that are attracted to town lights, and release them at coast in the morning.
  • Watch for noctilucent clouds through August.
  • Salmon are running in Alaska through September.
  • Sugar for moths. Warm, muggy nights are great. We added yeast to spoiled fruit plus lots of sugar (brown or white) and maybe honey, molasses, or syrup. Paint trees, posts, and stumps where staining does not matter. We used a lantern to check every 30-60 minutes.
  • Blacklight for moths.
  • Plant fall food plots.
  • Hunt leatherback mushrooms.
  • Look at mushroom spores under a microscope.
  • Raise monarch butterflies.
  • Copperheads are giving live birth to young.
  • Watch for hummingbird moths to visit petunias.
