Nature Nights: Bat & Moth Night
Thursday, August 17th
6:00pm — 10:00pm
(rain date: Friday, August 18th)

Bat Night and Moth Night are together for a double feature evening! Explore the mystery surrounding bats and learn all the ways moths are cool. Bring a picnic, get creative with University City Arts League, and enjoy sweet summer treats from Lil' Pop Shop!

The BAT WALK is back! We'll start at the Hamilton Mansion and walk as a group through the cemetery to the highest point in center circle, using a detector to look for bats along the way. Bats don't fly until it's dark out, so the Bat Walk will start at 8:30PM! The bat walk will be led by Dr. Lisa Powers, Chris Hauer, Marianne Gagnon, and Carrie Paul from the Sewall Lab at Temple University.

Author Anna Forrester will be here talking about her new children's book: Bat Count: A Citizen Science Story! Anna Forrester is an amateur naturalist who finds inspiration for her writing in the quirks and curiosities she encounters in the natural world. Bat Count: A Citizen Science Story is Anna’s debut picture book, and was inspired by counts she does with family and friends every summer at a farm in Pennsylvania. Visit Anna’s website at

Then, grab your flashlights because the search for our resident moths begins! The Academy of Natural Sciences will be here to guide us through a night filled with the science of moths.

This event is FREE and open to the public. Parking is limited, so please consider walking, biking, or taking public transportation.

In the event of inclement weather, Nature Night will be postponed until Friday, August 18th and notice will be posted on our website and social media pages at least 2 hours prior to the event start time.
