An Evening with the Moths

August 14 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Audubon’s Plainsboro Preserve, 80 Scotts Corner Road
East Windsor, NJ 08512 United States

PREREGISTRATION REQUIRED.  Back by popular demand. In July, our evening with the moths was so popular, we were asked to host a second event. Here’s your chance to get outside on a Friday night. If you thought moths were just small, drab, and annoying insects, you'll be surprised by what you learn about these fascinating nocturnal creatures. We will have a light station set up on the back deck where we expect to see dozens of species, big and small. A short walk through the woods will take us to a series of stations where we will try to lure in moths with a mixture of over-ripe fruit.  This event is scheduled to run until 10:30pm, but moth numbers and diversity increase as the night goes on, so we'll stay longer if the moths keep coming. Bring a flashlight and a camera.  Due to covid-19 all attendees must wear a mask at all times. Please register early – group size is limited. All minors must be accompanied by a registered adult. Cost: $7 members; $10 nonmembers TICKETS MAY BE PURCHASED BELOW   NEW JERSEY AUDUBON’S PROGRAM GUIDELINES: New Jersey Audubon field trips and programs adhere to CDC guidelines; leaders have the right to ask a participant to leave the program if someone is not adhering to these guidelines for the health and safety of all. Leaders and participants must wear face coverings throughout the program and maintain social distancing (at least 6’ of separation).
