Memorial University Botanical Garden is hosting a Moth Madness event taking place on Tuesday, Sept. 19 from 8 – 10:00 p.m., at 306 Mount Scio Rd.

Join Dr. Tom Chapman from the Department of Biology and Dr. Carolyn Parsons from the St. John’s Research and Development Centre as they host the pop-up event. The new moon is known to bring out moths, so you’re sure to see a variety!

Attract moths with mercury vapor, UV light traps, wine roping and sugaring. There will be moth sheets set up throughout the garden to allow you to get a great view! A few live-catch setups will be located throughout the garden and will give you an up close and personal view of some moths.
