7pm start – until late!

We are hosting an event for National Moth Night here at Sheepdrove Organic Farm, Lambourn, Friday 18 September, set up from 7pm.

Berkshire Moth Group is running the event.

Our herb garden at the back of the Eco Conference Centre is the special setting for our nocturnal discoveries! We have a wide range of moths living near the gardens, because of the other habitats nearby – ponds, chalk grassland, hedges and ancient woodland.

Many moths visit the garden at night to drink nectar from the flowers. We will use light traps to make sure we get a close look at them. Bright lamps attract the moths into boxes where they can be identified.

Everyone is welcome!
Have you ever been to a moth night? The variety of moth shapes and coloration can be mind-boggling, but the members of Berkshire Moth Group  will be on hand to help us to identify and understand which moths fly in!

Join us on 18 September for a great night out with a difference.

Dress for changeable weather! Even on a warm day it gets chilly later on.

Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.

Location: Sheepdrove Eco Conference Centre, Sheepdrove Road, RG17 7UU. Satnav users beware – enter road name NOT postcode.
