The Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration would like you to join us for an evening on their land on St. Joseph Ridge. Partnering again with Driftless Area BioBlitz, we will be learning about moths and other nocturnal insects. After a short presentation, we will explore the ridgetop looking for as many different organisms as we can see, cataloging them by taking a picture and posting it to the iNaturalist app. Here’s hoping we see more fireflies than mosquitoes!

This event will take place on top of a ridge with no steep edges. The presentation will be on a grassy lawn, and species-finding will follow on a natural prairie and some forested area, including paved and unpaved trails. This event is for all ages and abilities. Please bring personal insect repellent, a flashlight, and dress for the weather. We hope to see you there!
