Families are being invited to join the West Midlands Branch of BC and Ashwood Nurseries at this free Moth Morning in South Staffordshire - we will show you live moths caught the night before and teach you all about the species found in this area.

We will be showcasing the diverse and colourful world of British moths. With over 2500 species recorded in the British Isles, the variety of colours, shapes and sizes of our moths is truly staggering!

We’ll set up light traps in the Wildlife Meadow on the Friday evening and open them up for you on the lawn outside the Tea Room on Saturday 15th June from 9am until 12pm.

Don’t forget to bring your camera and bring the kids along too - moths are a great way for children to interact with the natural world and surveying moths is a highly educational activity. Come along and join the fun!

Please be aware that severe rain and wind may limit the amount of moths we are able to catch in the meadow.

If the weather has been poor please visit www.ashwoodnurseries.com for updated event information or phone 01384 401996 before leaving home.
