      More than 12,000 different types of moths flitter in North America, but it seems that most people only think of moths as those critters that destroy their fine wool clothes or hide in their pantry causing havoc in corn meal, flour and grain containers.

      Setting the record straight about the butterfly�s lesser respected cousin, National Moth Week (July 20-28) was created to raise awareness of the unique biodiversity of these winged wonders � flappers that do so much more good than harm. Not to mention that they are pretty darn cool to see up-close and personal.

      Locally, the second annual Moth Night is slated for Saturday, July 27 on the southwestern slopes at Elyria Canyon Park in Mount Washington. The nighttime program (the park is usually closed in the evenings) is presented by Mount Washington Homeowners Alliance, in cooperation with the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and the Mountains Recreation & Conservancy Authority.
