The 8th annual National Moth Week is July 20-28. Join docents Debbi Brusco, Jack Owicki, Sara Witt, and friends to discover nocturnal moths and other insects. You’ll observe beautiful and interesting critters attracted to a special light. Photography is encouraged, as is submission of photo observations to iNaturalist (a biodiversity community science repository). Bring a flashlight with red filter/cellophane covering, your camera, and close-focus binoculars if you have them.

(Note: This activity is restricted to the parking lot – no hiking; participants have the option to leave earlier than scheduled end time. See www.nationalmothweek.org.) Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after July 6.

Meet at the Preserve parking lot on Page Mill Road (across from Los Trancos Preserve), 7 miles west of I-280 or 1.5 miles east of Skyline Boulevard. Those traveling from I-280 on Page Mill Rd. should allow approximately 35 minutes travel time.
