Offwell Moth Group
at the Woodland Education Centre, Offwell, Devon, SW England
Offwell Moth Group is a club for people of all
ages with an interest in moths.
These are some of Britain's most beautiful and fascinating insects.
There are approximately 1000 of the larger moth species in Britain,
so there are plenty of different moths to catch and look at. (All later released unharmed
of course.) Different species of moths fly throughout the year, in all seasons.
Informal social meetings, combined with light trapping sessions are
held once a month from April through to October. The main aim of the Group is to interest
people in moths, although finding out what has been trapped also gives interesting
insights into the habitats at the Centre.
Meetings are based at the Log Cabin at the Woodland Education Centre in
Offwell. Conditions are suitable for people with limited mobility. Children (over 6) are
also welcome and members of the Offwell Young Rangers' Club join in with group meetings. The
meetings start slightly earlier if children are coming, so they don't get to bed too late.
Please let us know in advance if you are bringing children to a meeting.
