SOLD OUT | Moth Sheeting After Dark at Saul Lake Bog

July 9 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Free

Join LCWM, Spencer High (Querkus Creative), and Travis Kurtz (Community Science Coordinator at the John Ball Zoo) at Saul Lake Bog Nature Preserve as we learn about, observe, and document moths!

Moth sheeting is a great way to participate in community science and learn more about the night shift pollinators in your own neighborhood. We will have two light sheets to attract moths and other cool insects. Moths will begin to accumulate around the light once it gets dark. As they gather, we’ll take a closer look at them and try to identify who is who.

While we wait for moths to come to the sheets, we’ll take a quick hike around the preserve to learn about another night critter: bats! Using an Echo Meter Touch 2 (a tool that allows us to record and identify bats in real time), we’ll learn a bit more about the bats of West Michigan and why they’re important.

We recommend downloading iNaturalist prior to this event.

This event will happen outside – please come dressed for the weather. Headlamps/flashlights are encouraged. In the case of severe or dangerous weather, the event may be postponed or cancelled. Registrants will be notified of any changes via email and LCWM’s social media.

Please register to attend!
