Magnificent Moths & Nocturnal Creatures Moonlit Walk

August 13, 2021 - Greenwich, CT

Register

Moths are not only tremendously beneficial pollinators, but also come in an impressive array colors, patterns, shapes, and sizes. Some moths are as colorful and elegant as butterflies, and others have truly impressive camouflage abilities. Some moths are giant, and as large as a person’s hand!  There are many beautiful moths that might be right outside your home, that you may have never realized were there due to their elusive nature and nocturnal activity. Following a slide show presentation, we will take a nighttime walk to search for moths, listen to the many other late summer insects of our area such as Katydids and watch for other nocturnal creatures such as bats flying over our heads!

This IN-PERSON program has a limited capacity of participants and will be held entirely outdoors. All non-vaccinated participants are required to wear a face mask covering for the duration of the program.
