Caterpillar Crawl
Join our staff as we use the twilight “blue” hour to look for caterpillars and other insect activity with a UV flashlight and keen eyes. We will stroll around, checking the host plants caterpillars use as food sources during their larval stage of life. Our hike will meet inside the Taylor Center, but we will be focusing our exploration in the wooded areas just outside. Our staff members will have a UV light, but guests are welcome to bring their own flashlights too if they would like which could help in finding these elusive, camouflaged insects!

Nighttime Mothing
We invite you to spend a relaxing evening with us trying to catch a glimpse of these beautiful and sometimes elusive nocturnal creatures. National Moth Week is an opportunity to become a Citizen Scientist and celebrate the beauty, life cycles, and habitats of moths. We will be “sugaring for moths” and doing a very basic light set up to try to attract moths.
