Join entomologists Dr David Rentz (AM), specialist in Orthoptera, the family of insects that includes grasshoppers, locusts, katydids and crickets and Buck Richardson, the “moth whisperer”, as they guide you through the gardens to identify insects and animals.

Light sheets will be erected throughout the gardens to attract insects and help discover what’s out there!

  • A headlight or torch
  • Camera
  • Insect repellent

Adults: $10 per person
