Learn about the moths of Wissahickon Park

Moth Night

Tuesday September 27 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Celebrate the beauty, life cycle, and habitat of these stunning nocturnal fliers! During this annual twilight event, you’ll learn fascinating facts about the elusive nighttime pollinators. We’ll attract moths with three kinds of lures: two kinds of light lures and one sexy pheromone lure made with my top secret “3B Moth Bait” recipe. This sweet mixture attracts moths that are not attracted to light, and we paint it on tree trunks. Please bring a flashlight and be prepared to walk quietly in the dark. Download the iNaturalist app on your smartphone if you wish to participate in Citizen Science reporting what we see. Pre-registration is required.Suitable for children over 12 yrs old. No pets, please.
