Go Mothing! Enjoy the Garden at night in these free events! 

Have you noticed moths circling and zigzagging around lights on a summer night? Scientists are still not sure exactly why they do this, but we can use the behavior to make observations that contribute to the 2021 City Nature Challenge. You don’t have to be a scientist. All you need is a smart phone and your own curiosity! We’ll teach you how to make and upload observations onto iNaturalist. They do the identifications!

Using a light source, we’ll attract these fantastic nighttime creatures and provide them a surface to rest on. Your job will be to watch them arrive, snap a photo, and upload it to iNaturalist, becoming a community science contributor to this amazing global biodiversity database.
