Moth Night with Dr David Rentz

Wed 11 Jul

Lead by entomologist and FOBG patron Dr David Rentz, this is a unique opportunity for people to see something of the insect life found in the Gardens’ environs.

Large white sheets are attached to selected trees and then floodlit, attracting moths and other flying creatures to alight on them. This allows people to get a closer look at a variety of insects they are unlikely to see in daylight hours.

TIME: 6pm – 8pm
