National Moth Week: Adult Moth Hike

July 21 @ 9:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Free

National Moth Week celebrates the beauty, life cycles, and habitats of moths. First, learn what moths are and why they are important. Then we will hike the trails to look for moths and other nocturnal insects that were attracted to sugar baits. We will also look for caterpillars using a UV flashlight, since caterpillars glow under ultraviolet light. After the hike, we will check a light trap to see what was attracted to our black lights. You can learn about moths, but you can also help us document our findings with photographs as part of the National Moth Week Citizen Science Project.
