Moth Night with Kris Soffa

July 25, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

Four Underlings by Kris Soffa

Meet at the Wissahickon Environmental Center (Tree House)

Join us for this evening experience to learn about these alluring nighttime beauties. FOW Trail Ambassador and PA Master Naturalist Kris Soffa will present a “Moth Basics” presentation and share her mounted specimen collection. You will learn the best ways to observe moths in your home garden and how to construct a simple catch & release moth trap. You will have the chance to check if live moths are visiting “ultraviolet light-white sheet lures” and “sugar bait lures” painted on nearby trees with her secret 3B Moth Bait recipe. Please bring a flashlight and smartphone. Be prepared to walk quietly in the nearby woodland at the Tree House. Rain cancels. Level: Easy. Ages: 12+ with adult.

Registration is recommended for all hikes (required if indicated) so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations.
