Bugs at Dusk

  • Prairie Creek Lodge 7204 SE CR 234 Gainesville United States (map)

Join University of Florida entomologists for a blacklighting event at Prairie Creek Preserve. Blacklighting is a great way to attract a diversity of night flying insects, including moths, beetles, flies, ants, and many more. This is a fun way to learn about the local insect fauna and biodiversity supported by Prairie Creek Preserve. All ages are welcome.


Bring flashlights or headlamps. Feel free to bring any equipment or containers you have for collecting insects. A limited amount of collecting vials will be provided.
