Our Caretaker, John Boback, is also a naturalist and historian. He often does lectures for various groups, including the WV Mater Naturalists. Recently John photographed this Tulip-tree Silkmoth in Dorsey's Knob Park. This is the 437th species of moth that John has documented at the park. It is amazing that we have such diverse wildlife and a wonderful natural area like Dorsey's Knob available to residents and visitors of our community.
