Mothing and Blacklight Caterpillar Searches

August 13, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Friday, repeating until August 13, 2021

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