Moths and Butterflies

Summer holidays activities 2019 – Moths and Butterflies

Butterflies are beautiful insects that populate our gardens, meadows and green spaces throughout the summer.  Help us to carry out a butterfly count at the Thames Chase Forest Centre.

Moths are often just as beautiful, over 30 different moth species were identified at the recent BioBlitz at Thames Chase.  Come and see the variety of moths captured overnight.

We’re inviting you to join us on a journey of discovery to see how many fluttering friends we can spot around the site, while also learning how to differentiate between similar species.

How many different species can we find? Be sure to bring any pictures of interesting species you may have seen in your gardens too.

Thursday 8th August, 10am – 12 noon
Suitable for children aged 4-10 years old. Parental supervision required.
£3 per child.
