Description

Be part of a small group to enjoy a guided walk with a National Park Ranger as the sun goes down and the full moon rises. Hear from our Ranger Charlotte Wray about her love of moths and why they’re important to the environment. Learn how to set up your own moth trap and identify different species. Join astronomer Jo Richardson for a presentation about the Moon, its craters and hear the latest space travel stories! Weather permitting and with Jo’s help, there’s a chance of some guided stargazing. Numbers limited to 25 each session. Family session suitable for younger children - ideal for family/friends bubbles.
