Moths of the Night

Friday, June 15, 2018 at 9:00pm to 12:00am

Palmer Woods Natural Area, located on North Campus. Parking available in Cornell "A" Lot, off Pleasant Grove Road

As the sun sets we will have a brief introduction to moths and then fire up a bright mercury vapor light and two ultraviolet lights to attract the moths.  We will learn how to identify the myriad forms of moths that arrive through the night and learn about their natural history. Stop by for a few minutes or bring a lawn chair and hang out for the evening. Bring a flashlight or headlamp.
