Sam Jaffe, Founder and Executive Director, The Caterpillar Lab

Join us for a late night learning adventure to discover the nocturnal invertebrates that are flitting about the Arboretum after hours. Naturalist Sam Jaffe will start the evening in the classroom with some introductory information about the life-cycles of moths and other night flyers. He’ll then lead the group outdoors for a moth lighting at which we will admire and study a variety of nocturnal insects. Back in the classroom, microscopes and other field guides will allow us to make clear identifications of these lesser-seen beauties.

Dress for indoor and outdoor learning. Bring a headlamp or flashlight for navigating in and out of the Arboretum in the dark.

For adults and children ages 12 and older.
Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Doors will open at 8:30pm so that you can visit the Caterpillar Lab exhibit in the Visitor Center prior to the program start.

Fee $15, $5 youth
