Bug Bioblitz-Insects at Night

Brumley Nature Preserve

Chapel Hill, NC 27514

The North Carolina Entomological Society has teamed up with Triangle Land Conservancy to host the Brumley Bug Bioblitz on the afternoon of September 29, 2018.  We hope to document as many insects, spiders, and other arthropods as possible and upload the photos to iNaturalist where they can be shared with scientists and naturalists.  Anyone hiking at Brumley Nature Preserve this afternoon is welcome to photograph and submit bug photos to the Brumley Bug Bioblitz project on iNaturalist. For those who want a chance to explore the preserve’s diversity of insects more thoroughly, we are offering three structured events guided by the NCES.  These events are free, but pre-registration is required. Please register below for the coverboard and pitfall trap hike at 3:30 PM.

Insects at NIGHT  8:00 PM-10:00 PM 

Normally, the Brumley Nature Preserve is closed after dark, but not tonight! Come discover the mysterious world of night-flying insects.  We will photograph as many insects as we can at various insect-attracting light traps. Bring a camera, a headlamp or flashlight, and plenty of curiosity.
