On Saturday, July 20th at 7:30 pm at the Rincon Heights Community Garden on 8th and Fremont a group of entomology graduate students will be giving a presentation on blacking lighting in conjunction with a hands on black lighting set up.
Black lighting is a method of insect collection where a black light is set up that takes advantage of insect attraction to light. We aim to answer questions such as why certain insects are attracted to light and measure biodiversity in the garden as well as observe moth behavior. This event will act as a trial run towards inviting schools to similar events in the future while promoting citizen science in our community. Please RSVP if possible to give us an idea of the attendance we can expect.
