Morris Moth Night: Celebrating National Moth Week
Kris Soffa
Naturalist

Our introduction to the world of moths will start with a presentation, "Moth Basics," that introduces you to the fascinating world of moths. We will then learn how to construct a DIY moth trap, set ultraviolet light lures, and provide "sugar bait" for moths with our secret recipe. Don't miss your chance to visit the Out on a Limb exhibit to see what moths we have attracted. Who knew that moths have a sweet tooth, just like humans? No experience is necessary. This class is perfect for someone with a scientific interest and others who simply want to have an unusual nocturnal nature experience. Meet at Widener Visitors Center. Bring flashlight, camera and be prepared to walk quietly in the dark on the path to Out on a Limb. This class is for adults and children 12 years and older.

Stargazing at the Morris Arboretum
Ben Buono
Amateur Astronomer

Come join us for a pleasant evening in the garden and take advantage of our unique views of the skies. We hope to observe the the Lyrids on May 9th , the raindate. Ben Buono, one of our local backyard astronomers, will guide you through observing techniques to help you more fully enjoy the shower. He will also provide a guided tour of Orion and nearby constellations and a general discussion about observing, astronomy, and cosmology with time for questions and answers. Dress comfortably and bring something to sit or lay on to give you a relaxing view of the sky. No special equipment needed and for the more adventurous, bring your camera (tripod recommended).
