Wild for Moths - a family nature event

Wednesday 11 August, 10am to 12.30pm


Find out more about moths - these amazing creatures that fly by night and day - in our fun, family event that's FREE for under-18s.

Learn about moth and butterfly life-cycles and create your own moth-wing designs.

Our Ranger Phil Wilson will have set a moth trap in Sharpham's woodland the night before ready for a big Moth Reveal at this event - allowing you to get close-up to these fascinating insects, before safely releasing them back into the wild.

There'll also be a circular walk down to the fields on the Sharpham Estate that are the subject of rewilding, so that we can look for day-flying moths and butterflies.
