Accessibility: Parking will be available at Saw Mill Pond. Restroom is available nearby. Drinking water is available at water spigot. Path to program is pavement and concrete sidewalk.

Program Expectations: PARK WILL BE DARK. Program will consist of "Mothing" led by a park ranger. This consists of UV blacklights that attract certain flying insects to the identification area. These insects with be recorded and observed with iNaturalist. Please do not bring SUPER BRIGHT white lights. This will negatively affect participants' experiences. *Some wildlife becomes more active at night. While this is great for experience, safety precautions are at a high. Snakes, skunks, raccoons, coyotes, bobcats, biting insects, tripping, and many other hazards may present themselves during the program. Please stay with the ranger at all times if you are not familiar with these hazards.*
