Marvellous Moths and Minibeasts 

Wednesday 29th May, 10.30am-12.30pm.  FREE daytime event - no need to book!

How many different shapes, colours and patterns of small creatures can you find in our Gallery Garden? Discover the wonderful variety of moths found flying in the Garden last night, then hunt for beetles and bugs, snails and slugs and all sorts of other minibeasts hiding among our pots and plants. 

Led by Chris Piper and Dr June Chatfield from Alton Natural History Society. Chris is an expert on moths and frequently runs moth surveys at Gilbert White’s House in Selborne and around our local area. June is a professional naturalist with special expertise in snails and their close relations and a deep knowledge of other minibeasts, plants and lichens.

Free event. Suitable for adults and accompanied children of all ages.

This workshop is part of our “Re:Connecting – Habitats, Wildlife, People” exhibition, from Wed 15th May to Sun 23rd June. The exhibition features ceramics and photography inspired by Binsted Parish Council’s restoration of meadows and other habitats at Blacknest Fields and is in association with The Friends of Blacknest Fields and Alton Natural History Society.
