    National Moth Week at Cheyenne Mountain State Park

    SATURDAY JULY 18TH FROM 8:00 PM UNTIL 9:30 PM AT CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN STATE PARK.

    Cheyenne Mountain State Park is hosting our first event for National Moth Week (http://nationalmothweek.org) this year, and we'd love if you joined us!


    We'll be using lights to attract moths (and other insects, probably). This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about these creatures as well as take some awesome photos.

    The event is scheduled until 9:30 PM, but the park says we can stay as late as we'd like.

    This is a free, and open to the public program. Every vehicle entering the park must have a State Parks pass, though. The daily pass is $7. There is a self service station beside the entrance station where you can buy a pass. Exact change or checks are accepted at the self serve station. Camper services will be open late this night to accept credit cards, also.

    Camper services is actually where we will be meeting. The building is about 1.5 miles past the entrance gate to the park directly up the hill and on the right.

    To get to the park (address 410 JL Ranch Heights Road):

    Take Nevada Avenue south, which becomes Colorado State Highway 115 to JL Ranch Heights Road opposite the Main Gate One entrance to Fort Carson. Turn to the west to the park entrance.

    For more information, call Cheyenne Mountain State Park at 719-576-2016.

    Re: National Moth Week at Cheyenne Mountain State Park

    Our National Moth Week event at Cheyenne Mountain State Park is tomorrow night! It starts at 8PM (sun sets at 8:22PM) and will last for as long as we want it to. We're looking pretty good weather-wise, *especially* between 10PM and 12AM. The only thing that would cancel the event, really, is lightning; but the park says we can seek shelter in Camper Services if need be.

    If you want to come early we'll be grilling burgers in the picnic area 1/2 mile before Camper Services. Come hang out, chat, eat and relax.


    Bring water, a light jacket and comfortable walking shoes/hiking boots. If you have a flashlight/headlamp or a handheld black light please bring that, also. And don't forget your camera if you'd like to take photos!

    See you tomorrow!
