Halloween Blacklight Hike and Campfire

Oct 18, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Use black light to observe creepy-crawlies in the woods

What glows under a black light is called a phosophor – any substance that emits visible light in response to some sort of radiation, in this case the black light’s UV radiation. (Don’t worry, it’s not enough to hurt you.)

Of course what glows under a black light is also really eerie and cool, making it the perfect subject matter to explore around Halloween time.

Linking the coolness of nature with the coolness of black lights, all are invited to join Geauga Park District for this fun, purplish program in the park (and dress in costume to really soak in the spirit):
