Moth Morning and Introduction to Butterfly Identification

Location: Oxen Park Reading Room, Oxen Park, postcode area LA12 8HJ. Please note that parking is limited so please car share if you can.

The Rusland Horizons Butterfly and Moth project Wings in the Woods is continuing with several events planned for this year. We will be working in partnership with Butterfly Conservation to complement and support some of their events, which will provide an opportunity to see, study and help conserve these beautiful insects in the Rusland Valley.

On Saturday 20 July 2019 there will be a Moth Morning with an introduction to butterfly identifiction and preparation for the Big Butterfly Count. This will involve opening several moth traps which are placed around Oxen Park the night before.

There will then be a walk in the countryside around Oxen Park in search of butterfies, learning how to indentify the different species and how we can all take part in the Big Butterfly Count by helping to monitor the butterflies of the Rusland Valley.

The event is suitable for all ages and families are welcome, but all children must be accompanied by an adult.

Please note in case of bad weather on 20 July there is a reserve date of Sunday 21 July.
