Bats, Moths & Stars at Greenmyres

Friday 16th September 7.00pm – late

 

GREENMYRES ACTIVIITES EVENING – BATS, MOTHS & STARS

 

Discover some of the fascinating nocturnal inhabitants of community-owned Greenmyres Farm, as we use smelly mixtures and bright lights to attract moths, plus bat detectors to locate and identify bats. A local astronomer will be on hand too with a telescope to view the wonders of the night sky (or demonstrate what would otherwise be visible if it is cloudy)!

 

Children aged <16 must be accompanied.
