This workshop provides an opportunity for you to take part in a range of practical activities with our mothing team. You will learn about the vital role that moths play in our ecosystems and see how our team set up moth traps to attract moths. You will discover how to identify a beautiful variety of moths and how you can attract them to your own garden.  Attendees are also welcome to come along the next morning from 7.00am to see the moths from the overnight trapping being observed, recorded and then released.

    Howe Park is probably the woodland mentioned in the Domesday Survey of 1086. Parts of it may be rare surviving fragments of the 'wildwood' that covered the whole of lowland Britain after the last Ice Age, 6-11,000 years ago.

    There is a Café at Howe Park Wood ran by Grounds. The café is operating a takeaway only service until further notice.
