National Moth Week: Moth Night

July 27 @ 8:00 pm - July 28 @ 12:00 am

Free

As National Moth Week ends, enjoy a night of mothing, and learn how you can study moths at home. First, learn how to attract moths with lights and help set up a light trap. Then we will head out on the trails where participants can sugar bait their own tree. As we wait for it to get darker and for the moths to come out, we will talk about what moths are and why they are important. Afterward, we will head back out on the trails to see what was attracted to our sugar baits and light trap and see if we can find any caterpillars glowing under a UV flashlight. 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. Stay for a few hours or help study moths until midnight. Children who attend will receive moth coloring pages.

Meet at the Discovery Center Porch.  All ages are welcome to this free event, registration is not required.
