Event Type

This event is part of The Driftless Area BioBlitz 2023 Spotlight on Nature Series. Viterbo University Biology Dept, along with the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, invite you to join them for an evening on FSPA  land on St Joeseph Ridge ( W2658 W33, La Crosse, WI 546o1).  We will learn about moths and other nocturnal insects during this FREE event.

After a short presentation, we will explore the ridgetop, looking for as many different organisms as possible, 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 atop 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 areas, 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! This event is weather- dependent and registration is required. To register go to FaceBook: Driftless Area ,BioBlitz
