Mothing and Black Light Caterpillar Searches

Friday, August 19, 2022

Join park naturalists and fellow insect enthusiasts to explore the various insects that are attracted to bright lights in the forest. Stay as long as you’d like to observe and learn. Stay by the lights, or join leaders on a slow, dark, walk in search of nibbling nocturnal caterpillars. We expect to find hundreds of different moth species, loads of beautiful caterpillars, and various other interesting insects including dobsonflies and long-horned beetles. 

ALL PROGRAMS REQUIRE PRE-REGISTRATION UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED. All programs are free unless otherwise noted. SPACES ARE LIMITED TO MAINTAIN HIGH QUALITY PROGRAMMING. To register call 717-428-1961 or email and include your name, number of participants, ages of children, and phone number.
