Gilfach Nature Reserve
St Harmon, Rhyader, LD6 5LF
The Gilfach area of Mid Wales is known for its stunning, dark skies with an International Dark Sky Park nearby. Listen to night noises and gaze at the stars if it is clear. We will be looking at moths and detecting bats with our specialised detectors. A short walk on easy terrain will be around 1 mile long. Please bring torches, a mat to sit on, insect repellent and wear outdoor clothing and footwear. Ticket cost: £5. Meet at the Pont Marteg Gateway, Gilfach Nature Reserve.
