  • Heard After Hours: Magical Moth Night

    Jul 27th, 2019
    8:00pm - 11:30pm
    Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary

    Experience the magic of moths. These insects are often thought of as being less interesting than their popular lepidopteran cousins, butterflies. But on this night, we’ll dispel this myth and show you the fascinating, flitting world of these winged beauties. Not only are they important pollinators, but they are also excellent indicators of the health of their natural environments.

    Magical Moth Night will include an insightful talk about these amazing creatures. After the talk, our trail guides will lead you into the sanctuary to experience the Heard’s nature at night. Your guided hike will end at one of the observation stations, where you’ll be able to study moths firsthand through the use of non-lethal catch and release methods. The diversity of what you will find may come as surprise!

    This event will also feature our new 4-foot diameter Magic Planet digital global display as it illustrates the night sky in a whole new way. Family-friendly activities, such as face/arm painting and exhibit hall admission, will be included. Guests are welcome to bring their own snacks or picnic to enjoy at designated areas during the event.

    $19/non-member; $16/Heard Museum Members* (Age 3 years through adult). Pre-registration is required for this event. Click here to register.

    Closed toed shoes, long pants, and bug spray are recommended. Participants will be outdoors for at least an hour. Children ages 18 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
