#ClimateCryptids: Mothman

October 2023 (approx.)

Detailed Description

Terrible omen, or friendly pollinator?

Either way, planting native flowers and plants will help you stay on Mothman's good side! (It can't hurt, right?) By providing food and habitat, native plants can attract all manner of winged pollinators to your yard, including bees, butterflies, and moths.


Expanded Alt Text: A large, black, humanoid creature with wings and glowing red eyes glides through a residential backyard full of native plants. The text reads "Planting native plants provides food and habitat for many species of pollinators, including mothman."
