First, we will take a night hike to explore the amazing world of moths and some other arthropods. Unsing light traps and baiting methods we will attract moths and see the wonderful diversity of Ohio’s various moth species.

After your hike, weather permitting, join the Astronomy Club in TWC's observatory to enjoy what the summer night sky has to offer through our telescopes. You might even see a few Perseid meteors. If the weather doesn't cooperate there will be a "Tonight's Sky" show in the planetarium.
