Sanjay Van is a sprawling forest area surrounding urban landscape, where we can find thickly wooded areas and effluent water discharge which provides excellent habitats for city moths. Like everybody else if you ever wondered as to why moths circled street lights then come join us on Delhi’s first night walk for months and for answers to many such questions.On our walk we are presenting an overnight moth appreciation station to encounter nocturnal moths to see their beauty and variety of different colors, size and shapes.
