Naturalist Program – Life that Glows

April 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

No fee. Registration deadline: April 13.

PROGRAM

Discover an intriguing hidden world of glowing organisms found right here in Burlington County. Some objects, when subjected to short wave ultraviolet radiation, will emit another type of light, with lower energy and longer wavelength. This phenomenon is referred to as ultraviolet induced visible fluorescence (UVIVF).

Rocks and minerals, fungi, lichens, plants, spiders, birds, many insects and other invertebrates all give off UV fluorescence. To find out what fluoresces in our area, Jennifer Bulava, Park Naturalist for the Burlington County Park System, started a new series entitled “Life that Glows” where participants walk in the dark with special UV flashlights to find glowing life. This presentation will display the photographic observations and findings of Jennifer’s preliminary research in this exciting new field of science—UVIVF.
