Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Moths: A Nocturnal Exploration Field Trip

On this trip, we will shine a light into the hidden diversity that exists in the Sonoran Desert!

Pima County Naturalist, Jeff Babson will set up a UV light and see what treasures the night produces.  UV lights, also known as black lights, emit wavelengths that attract many insects, including moths and beetles.  Many of these insects are common, but live their lives in darkness and many people are unaware of their existence. Feel free to arrive anytime during the allotted timeframe. Great for families! Location to be determined and specific meeting instructions will be emailed beforehand.

  • 7:30pm – 10:00pm
  • Free with Festival Registration
  • Difficulty: 1 (Easily accessible location with a short drive)


“Drive Yourself” field trips will meet on-site at birding locations and you will received detailed directions.
