Join us as we explore Epping Forest and discover more about the nature and wildlife that lives here.

Discover the hidden world of moths. Join us in the evening as we set up a moth-trap and come back the following morning to find out what we have caught. We will find out loads about them, identify some and discover more about how we can help them in our own gardens.

This even takes place at Wanstead Park.

Please meet at the Temple.
