Blacklight Bug Catching–City Nature Challenge

April 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


As part of the City Nature Challenge , join us for this special after-hours entomological adventure!

Entomologist Rich Shilk will have  a black light set-up to attract nocturnal insects on Saturday April 29th.  This is part of the Rancho’s  participation of City Nature Challenge as we observe and document wildlife on the site.  Not only will we have a new moon, but we will be turning off most of the typical lighting to direct the critters to our location.

Program runs from 7:30 -9:00 pm. There is no charge but space is limited and reservations are mandatory.  Wear closed toed shoes and dress for the weather/time of day. If you are bringing a headlamp or flashlight you will be asked to leave it off during the program so as not to disturb the insects.


Tickets are not available as this event has passed.
