Moth Night

Tuesday, July 25, 8:30 – 11 PM

Event Details

High Park is lucky enough to be a home to many incredible species of moths! As most moths are nocturnal, this event will take place in the evening to maximize viewing opportunities. We will begin with a moth talk, and then have lots of time to observe some of the moths of High Park on specially lit sheets. Members of the Toronto Entomologists’ Association will be on hand to share their knowledge.
