Eagle Point Moth Ball

Grab your headlamps and hiking gear, because Eagle Point - Blue Rapids Parks Council has gathered an all star squad of creature appreciators to celebrate our allies in the dark - and attendance is totally free!
Join Alberta Amphibian and Reptile Conservancy, the Alberta Lepidopterist’s Guild, and the Alberta Community Bat Program for what is definitely going to be the night creature appreciation event of the season. Meet some creatures, take a toad walk, experience a moth lighting demonstration and display, and more at the MOTH BALL! Get in on it July 31. This free event is open to people of all ages who want to learn more about all the creatures we rarely see! Consider this a celebration of night creatures with special emphasis on moths, toads, bats and snakes!
