Monday July 23, 2012 9:00 PM - 11:00 PM


Friends EBEC in conjunction with National Moth Week, invite you to celebrate the first night in a week ofNocturnal Biodiversity at ElkPine Woods, starting at 9 p.m. Please join us in undertaking what might bethe biggest Global Citizen Science Project ever attempted in the history ofmoth study.

We will be attracting moths &other entomology subjects to a white sheet using a Mercury Vapor Light, UVlighting  & possibly fermented baitthat is painted on the trees. It will be dark, so make sure to check thebatteries in the flashlight and don’t forget to bring it. There will be no raindate for this event.


This small park is a real gem with its outstanding views of FarringtonLake, its truly peaceful feel and deep shade from towering White Pines, and thelikelihood of finding a Great Horned Owl or at least evidence of one and don’tforget the moths! So come on out and visit what Town Attorney MichaelBaker characterized as "the single most beautiful piece of property inEast Brunswick."


Directions to Elk Pine Woods:

The park is easily accessible by parking in the large gravel parking lotat the end of the access road to the Elks Lodge (off a long narrow road fromHardenburg Lane, look for the Elks Sign). A sign near the corner of the parkinglot notes the access point to the trailhead.
