John and Grace Darling led us on a walk through SCNP with emphasis on finding some active Yucca Moths in the Glen Rose Yucca Meadow.
Before we started walking, John and Grace provided some background on Yucca Moths. For example, male and female moths emerge from their cocoons in the spring, timed with the blossoming of the yucca plant. There is an extraordinary partnership between the yucca moth and the yucca plant. They are so interdependent that one cannot live without the other, referred to as mutualism.
