Moths, Wormeries and Cowslips


We set up the moth trap the night before. The moths are attracted to the bright light and then fall into the trap. The next morning we meet to explore which moths we have caught . We will see what spring moths have been caught in the live trap and admire, identify, photograph them and then release them safely. We will look around the garden to see various sustainable practices in action while having a cup of coffee, and then we’ll walk down the path to a field with a variety of trees and wildflowers including cowslips. There is a short uphill walk to return

It is exciting to see the variety of beautiful moths that are present without us being aware of them in gardens around Bath.

This event is limited to 15 guests.

Please wear weather appropriate clothes and footwear.

Bring with you [optional]:

  • Camera or phone for photos
  • Moth identification guides/books
