Moth Night with Kris Soffa

September 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Meet at Wissahickon Environmental Center – Tree House.

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.

Suitable for children over 12 yrs old. No pets, please.

Registration is required for all events so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. We ask all event attendees to bring a mask and mask up if a distance of six feet cannot be maintained during the activity. If you or anyone in your household are exhibiting COVID-19 systems, please stay home. More information is at
