Citrus Hammock Preserve: Black-light Night Hike: Invertebrates, Flowers, and Fungus…Oh My!
Frogs trill, owls lurk, and bats fly overhead! These are some of the nighttime wonders waiting for us as we walk by this piney upland bordered by riparian hammock, which is as magical at night as it is during the day. Insects, spiders, and lichens will be highlighted as we look with "new eyes" that the black-light provides. The black-light helps us to understand how organisms fully use the light spectrum to communicate.
