Inspired by the work of Scottish entomologist and a moth collector Alice Blanche Balfour, we’re celebrating the moths and women of entomology (the study of insects).

Join entomologist Katty Baird at 09:00 for an early morning walk around East Fortune Airfield to discover what we’ve caught in our overnight moth traps.

From 10:00–12:00, make your own paper insect inspired by the moths you find. Or take inspiration from the collection of Alice Blanche Balfour who collected moths here in East Lothian over 100 years ago. What can we learn from the moths Alice caught then and the ones we catch today?

Event runs 09:00 - 12:00 on both  30th June and 1st July.

This event is hosted by National Museums Scotland. Normal admission fee to the Museum of Flight applies.  Book here.
