Moth Night at Burroughs Sanctuary in West Park

The John Burroughs Association recognizes National Moth Week with Moth Night at the John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary (home of the legendary cabin Slabsides) on Saturday, Aug. 3. In the fifth in a series of curious and heightened outings, attendees will meet trip leader Mathew Rymkiewicz at the Pond House, where lighting and other bait will be set up to attract the winged creatures of mention. To find the Pond House, follow the “Path through History” signs at the intersection of Floyd Ackert Road and Route 9W in West Park and turn west onto Floyd Ackert Road (at the End Cut restaurant); continue for about a mile, past Burroughs Drive; continue a short distance and make a left at the next sanctuary entrance with the new sign marked Black Creek Trail and Pond Entrance. Enter and follow Pond Lane to the Pond House.
