National Moth Week @ Bartram’s Garden (2019)

  • Date: August 2, 2019
  • Time: 4:00pm - 6:00pm

We’ll be celebrating National Moth Week by hanging out with woodland gardener Mandy Katz and naturalists Ken Frank and LJ Brubaker in the Lower Garden, luring at an incredible array of nocturnal insects with black lights, overripe bananas and molasses.

Bring your phone to learn about documenting insects with the iNaturalist app, plus tips on using your phone for macro insect photography!

National Moth Week celebrates the beauty, life cycles, and habitats of moths, a vitally important but often overlooked pollinator. “Moth-ers” of all ages and abilities are encouraged to learn about, observe, and document moths in their backyards, parks, and neighborhoods.

This event is free, but please RSVP.
