Outings

Night Life of Halton!
June/July
Not the bars and discos, but the places where frogs provide the music and you don’t need to worry about Covid! Fiona will be holding several moth nights over the summer, using lights and bait to attract a diversity of moths and other insects into view.
One event will be held during National Moth Week (Yes, there IS a whole week just for moths!).
This is weather dependent and so the dates can’t be fixed as yet. Send Fiona an email (Fiona.reid7243@gmail.com) if you would like to be notified of upcoming events.

************************************************

Don’t miss out on the fun!

We have one or more outings every month throughout the year, guided by the most experienced naturalists in our club. The outings will be fairly casual affairs, meaning… you won’t have a lot of advance notice. We’ll announce the details at each meeting, often along the lines of “hey I’m going out to do/see this next weekend, anyone want to come?”

We’ll follow-up with a club email, and post the details here, on Facebook, and on Twitter.

If you can’t make a club meeting, make sure you  sign up for our newsletter to stay in the loop.
