Nocturnal Nature: Moths by Moonlight

8:00 pm to 11:00 pm
- This event has passed.
When the sun goes down, the moths come out! Join us for this very special glimpse into the world of New England’s nocturnal insects, led by knowledgeable naturalists from The Caterpillar Lab. We’ll begin indoors with an introduction to “moth lighting” – the practice of setting up white sheets and special, moth-attracting lights and seeing who flies in – before heading outside for an evening of mothing. We guarantee you’ll be amazed by the diversity, size, and beauty of what we find.
8 to 11 p.m. at the Harris Center. The talk starts at 8 p.m. and the outdoor session runs from 9 to 11 p.m. You’re welcome to join us for either or both, and to leave as early as you like. If you plan to join us outside, be sure to wear pants and long sleeves (no bright colors, please), bring a flashlight, and be prepared for biting insects. For more information, please contact Brett Amy Thelen at (603) 358-2065 or by email.
Cosponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education and The Caterpillar Lab.
