Stay up late and celebrate National Moth Week! Revel in the beauty and learn about the life cycles and habitats of moths.

Activities include:

  • Design your own set of moth wings and antennae to buzz around town!
  • Black Light Bonanza: Face Painting and Moth Making in the Glow Room by the Staten Island Children’s Museum
  • Cooper Keane and the Mobile Monarch Museum
  • Freshkills Park After Dark Science Activities: Bat & Moth, Deer Bed, and Midnight Smells
  • Moth specimens on display from the museum’s collection along with magnifying glasses to look closely
  • Night Walk to search the skies and see what insects find our light attractor appealing (bring your own flashlight!)

Moth Night is supported in part by Generation Bridge.
