Night Creatures: Scouting Bats and Moths

with Conrad Vispo & Claudia Knab-Vispo (Hawthorne Valley Farmscape Ecology Program)

Cost: $10, Free to Members.

Note: This workshop is limited to 20 participants. Pre-registration is required.

Summer nights are alive with an incredible variety of creatures. Discover the overlapping worlds of bats and moths, first with an indoor introduction to the natural history and diversity of these groups, and then, as twilight arrives, we’ll head out to listen and explore. Bats largely navigate using ultrasonic sounds and with bat detectors we’ll listen-in on their activity. Once darkness settles, we’ll switch over to mothing around special moth- attracting lights.  We’re confident that by the end of the evening you’ll be thinking differently about natural nightlife.
