Moths are amazing, beautiful, diverse, they are all around us and we are trying to find out more about moths in the AONB to make sure we can look after them in the future. This is an exciting opportunity to learn about the moths of the AONB with local experts Charlie Fletcher (County Moth Recorder) and Jill Warwick (Harrogate and District Naturalists' Society Macro-moth Recorder). Jill and Charlie will set up the moth traps the night before and in the morning we can see what they have found.
If you are interested in running your own moth trap, you can borrow one from us to set up in your garden on 25th May. You can then bring your 'catch' along to our morning session on 26th May for identification with Charlie and Jill. Please contact the AONB office on AONBevents@harrogate.gov.uk for more information.
Please note this event is weather-dependent and in the event of bad weather we will make a decision the day before. Please provide your telephone number when booking.
This event is free but places are limited so please book to avoid disappointment. It's an early start but we will provide cake!
