Holyrood Park Moths

Join Butterfly Conservation volunteers and HES rangers as we take a look at the moths attracted to light traps left in the park the overnight before releasing them back into the wild.

A chance to see these beautiful nocturnal insects close-up, take photographs and learn more about moths and moth recording.

This is a free event and is suitable for all ages, but please email to book a place so we have an idea of numbers.

This is also a great opportunity to take part in the Big Butterfly Count.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.

We hope to see you there!
