Blacklighting at LLELA! October 21

Hey all!

On Thursday, October 21, we'll do some black-lighting at LLELA. We'll be by the greenhouse with a whole slew of black-lighting stations!

Here's the exact GPS: 33.06272635238685, -96.98885902094148
It'll be off of the Jones St. entrance -- basically the first right that you can take as you get into LLELA.

You do not have to be a master naturalist to join this event! It is one of the pre-conference field trips for the Texas Master Naturalists, but any and all can come to this without any sort of registration.

LLELA is a great place for mothing/black-lighting. Here are the moths that have been documented at LLELA so far:,47654

Hope to see you there! :) Let me know if you've got any questions or concerns.

mmmm if it wasn't so last minute, maybe I'd plan an impulse Texas trip. But that might be happening at the end of the month instead.

@saltyhiker Wanna go?

I will try to come for a little while at least. But 6:30 about earliest I imagine I could get there.

What time will the festivities start? Friday is a work day so I can't be out there until midnight but I'll definitely plan on coming!

I've been to llela dozens of times this past summer for a research project and I've seen tons of moths flying around at night. I'd love to come help out but unfortunately I'll be out of town. Next time hopefully!

Another event I might be interested in… while traveling for work. Maybe next time…

Henry and I will be there. Should we bring a sheet?

Publicado por judyaschner 12 meses antes (Sinalizar)

I am so excited - I am off and will be there!

@sambiology, what time does it start?!

Publicado por lulubelle 12 meses antes (Sinalizar)

Thanks for the invite, Sam. I'm afraid we won't be able to make this one.

Publicado por rehb 12 meses antes (Sinalizar)

So glad that some folks will be there, and if you're not able to make it, we'll miss you! :) No frets -- more of these black-lighting events will come again in the future. :)

So, you can kinda show up whenever you'd like to LLELA -- I'll probably get there at around 6 or so. If you've got a set up, please bring it! I'll bring all of my gear though, so don't feel any obligation to bring yours. I'll probably stay out there until like 10 or so. It may be a little chilly, so some of the bugs may not be there. We'll see!

Again, the location will be around the greenhouse, not far from the entrance off of Jones Road.

Just in case, toss my cell in your contacts: 214 215 5605

Thanks for the invite! As always, I would love to go, but doesn't look like it'll be possible for me right now. Have fun!

I will be bringing three set-ups and perhaps a small gaggle of UNT SER students:) Planning on being there at 6pm.

I'm out for this one, y'all have a ton of fun!

Publicado por gwaithir 12 meses antes (Sinalizar)

Turns out Henry and I will not be able to attend tonight.
Life responsibilities get in the way of fun sometimes. :(

Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately, already booked this evening.
