Clay—Modeling African Design

Repeats every day until Sun Nov 14 2021 .
(All day)

Location: 

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA

Moth Meet

9:00pm to 10:30pm

Location: 

Hunnewell Building, Arnold Arboretum, 125 Arborway, Boston

Join the Arnold Arboretum for a late night learning adventure to discover the nocturnal invertebrates that are flitting about the Arboretum after hours. Naturalist Sam Jaffe will start the evening in the classroom with some introductory information about the life-cycles of moths and other night flyers. He’ll then lead the group outdoors for a moth lighting at which we will admire and study a variety of nocturnal insects. Back in the classroom, microscopes and other field guides will allow us to make clear identifications of these lesser-seen beauties.
