Project Silkmoth started at Paul Smith's College

PAUL SMITHS - Janet Mihuc, associate professor and director of Paul Smith's College's biology and environmental science programs, is leading Project Silkmoth, an 11-week census of the insects this spring and summer.

People who see silkmoths anywhere north of a line running from Oswego through Utica and Saratoga Springs between May 15 and July 30 can report their findings on a form available at www.projectsilkmoth.org. Forms will be accepted through September 1.

Mihuc will compile the results and add them to the Adirondack All-Taxa Biodiversity Inventory, a project coordinated by Paul Smith's College seeking to catalog every species in the park.
