Ever wonder about the critters that come out after dark? Join us for an evening exploration of the night-flying insects at the Trust! Moths are important members of our ecosystems, pollinating flowers and serving as indicators of the health of an area. Moths and their larvae (caterpillars) that we see during the daytime are also important food sources for many species, including bats, birds, and frogs. Our staff scientist will use black (ultraviolet) light to view moths, beetles, and other non-biting insects up close. Come learn about how night-flyers use the moon for navigation and the species that share the forest and fields of Pennsylvania with us. All ages welcome. Pre-registration is required. Meet outside of our Visitor’s Center (2955 Edge Hill Road) 10 minutes before the program begins. $10 Per Person.
