Moth Night at Gilbert Riparian Institute (also known as the Gilbert Water Ranch)


Tuesday, August 27, 2019
6:00 PM - 9:00 AM

Join CAzBA at the Gilbert Riparian Institute (behind the library in Gilbert on southeast corner Greenfield and Guadalupe) for Moth Night. After an educational PowerPoint presentation, Margarethe will set up white sheets illuminated by mercury-vapor lights at Honeybee Point, that will attract all kinds of insects. We'll have plenty opportunity to photograph and observe moths, lace-wings, arthropods, scorpions and more, and we will help you ID them. Judging by our prior Moth Nights, you can expect an event that will be great fun for families, kids, entomologists and photographers - just about everyone who enjoys a little adventure outdoors and after dark. Please wear closed-toe shoes and bring a flashlight or headlamp. If you have a black-light, bring it too, as we might find some scorpions! We ask for a small donation of $3 per person. Children 12 and under free.
