Southwest Wings: Summer Festival Field Trip – WP1 Blacklight Adventure
After the sun sets, a whole new world awakens, largely unseen by most.
Join Jeff Babson to explore the Huachuca Mountains at night and step into the nighttime world of moths and other insects. We will set up a black (or UV) light to see what we can draw out of the darkness. Southern Arizona is as famous for insects as it is for birds, and is home to over a thousand species of moth as well as a great variety of beetles. This is an easy, casual way to get acquainted with nature after dark and we may even be serenaded by owls. Bring a camera, flashlight, light jacket, and hat. Guide Jeff Babson.
