Moths, Beetles and Bugs, Oh My!

Presented by Bear Creek Nature Center at Bear Creek Nature Center, Colorado Springs CO

Apr 26
Moths, Beetles and Bugs, Oh My!

Under the cover of darkness, observe insects by blacklight illumination.

Join Mile High Bug Club as we deploy blacklights to attract some of these natural wonders during the City Nature Challenge.

With luck you might glimpse Glover’s Silkmoth, a beautiful and giant insect that frequents our foothill forests.

Entomologists will be on hand to help you record observations and answer your questions about insects, spiders, and other overlooked organisms.
