Join Green Minds and Devon Moth Group at Poole Farm at the heart of Derriford Community Park to explore the amazing world of moths! Find out how to set up light traps, identify moths and learn about the important role they play, and how you can help them at home.

Devon Biodiversity Records Centre Community Ecologist Jess Smallcombe and members of Devon Moth Group are running this survey as part of the Take Action For Wildlife series of citizen science training events. Local experts will be on hand to help with identification of the species caught and the moths will be recorded as part of the Green Minds Project.
