Mushrooms and Moths by Moonlight
April 30, 2021 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pmFree
Join us for an evening centered on nocturnal biodiversity for this year’s City Nature Challenge! We’ll search for biofluorescent fungi, lichens, and insects as we make our way through dense areas of the forest. Along the way we will also listen for nocturnal birds, reptiles, and amphibians to record and identify using iNaturalist. Once we return to the center, we’ll check our moth tent to hopefully see a great diversity of night time pollinators stopping by to say hello. The hike will be led by the Philadelphia Mycology Club. UV flashlights will be provided but feel free to bring your own if you’d like. Good hiking shoes are recommended. Registration is required. Due to COVID, space is limited so please let us know if you register and can no longer attend. Masks are required throughout the program. For more information about the City Nature Challenge please visit cncphilly.org. *Late time is to allow for more biodiversity in our moth tent.
The Hike has reached capacity. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on a waiting list for cancellations.
